Happy Holidays Everyone!
There are many celebrations going on this time of year and people celebrate in many different ways. We’d love to hear about some of your traditions!

It’s also the end of the year and we’d like to thank you for your support in 2015. We had a great year and we’re very much looking forward to our work in 2016. We know there’s a lot of end-of-year giving requests coming your way right now, but we’d like you to keep the NFN in mind when giving this year. Without support from individuals like you we certainly couldn’t do the work we do! You understand the importance of documenting cultural traditions, supporting traditional artists, and educating children about different cultures.
Just to give you an idea, here’s an estimate of the costs to create just one cultural education kit:
– Interviews and materials – $700
– Thank-you honorariums for cultural interviews – $25 x 10 interviewees
– Time spent researching the culture or cultures depicted – $300
– Time spent writing and editing materials – $200
– Travel for research and interviews – $150
= $1,600 per trunk

“Make the Malone Center Greater Fund”

As 2015 comes to a close we want to thank you for supporting the Malone Center, our children, youth, the families we serve, and the programs we provide.  Overall, this has been a good year for the Malone Community Center. We restarted our Early Childhood Education Center, held a very successful Symposium on African American  Art, Culture and History, had record enrollment in our Out-of-School Program, instituted a Healthy Lifestyle emphasis in all of our programming, renewed our Domestic Violence Outreach Program, and continued to make progress in updating and renovating our facility.

We received substantial gifts and grants from the Goldwin Foundation, the Cooper  Foundation, Humanities Nebraska, Lincoln Arts Council, the Abel Foundation, Lancaster County Human Services, Hampton Family Enterprises, Building Strong Families, Lincoln Community Foundation, and gifts from the estates of Mr. Harlan Layton and Mrs. Malone-Frees. We are so thankful for this support.

We have much to do, and we need your support today.

I am asking each of the over 2,000 subscribers to this newsletter to make a final donation in 2015 to the “Make the Malone Community Center Greater Fund”. We need  your help to pay off our indebtedness for our Heating and AC system and to provide general operating funds for the Center.

Please consider making such a donation today before the end of the calendar year.

You can send your tax deductive check to the Malone Center at 2032 U Street, Lincoln, Nebraska 68503, “Make Malone Center Greater Fund” or you can donate online by simply clicking on the link.

Help us continue to grow, improve our programming, and update our facility with a generous contribution today. Let’s make the Malone Community Center even greater.

Finally from our Malone Center Family, we wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season and the best in the New Year!!

Omaha Brothers Diagnosed With Muscular Dystrophy Need New Van

Two Omaha brothers have a lot in common. They both excel in school, they share a room they decorated together, and they both get around their home using motorized wheelchairs. The two also desperately realize their van, that allows them to get to school and their activities, is falling apart. Having a new one would make life much easier for both them, and their mother. Now, they just need to find the funds to get it.

Rotary gives US$40.4 million to end polio worldwide

On the heels of historic success against polio in Nigeria and across the continent of Africa, the global effort to end polio is receiving an additional US $40.4 million boost from Rotary to support immunization activities and surveillance spearheaded by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Polio is on track to become the second human disease ever to be eliminated from the world (smallpox is the first). To date, Rotary has helped 194 countries stop the transmission of polio through the mass immunization of children. Rotary’s new funding commitment, announced in advance of the Oct. 24 observance of World Polio Day 2015, targets countries where children remain at risk of contracting this incurable, but vaccine-preventable, disease.

Rotary and ShelterBox support Syrian refugees |

 “The plight of Syria’s refugees is a litmus test for the world’s compassion,” says Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko. “Rotary members worldwide are profoundly disheartened by the refugee crisis now unfolding in Syria and other parts of the world,” which the United Nations has described as the worst in decades.
