Nebraska Cattlemen is working to assist cattle producers impacted by natural disasters by launching a new disaster relief fund.
The Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund is organized in the State of Nebraska as a not-for-profit corporation and will be seeking to qualify as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization under which all donations made to the Fund would be tax deductible for the donor in accordance with applicable federal tax laws.
100% of all donations received will be distributed to Nebraska cattle producers affected by natural disasters, including recent wet weather events. **A convenience fee for online donations may apply.
If you would like to write a check, make it out to Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund and mail it to:
