Mission & History

The Foundry aims to support, educate, and empower the purpose-driven community.

The Foundry Community exists to elevate Nebraska nonprofit and purpose-driven businesses with great space, a supportive community, reliable services, and added capacity through our internship partnership with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Honors program.  We deeply value our members and work hard to provide infrastructure support to set Lincoln-based nonprofits and purpose-driven businesses up for success. Our purpose allows small organizations to do what they do best - directly serve their important missions to add good to the world. 

Founded in 2015 as a physical space to augment the services of the Nonprofit Hub, The Foundry has evolved over time to forge its own path to provide the best-in-class set of facilities and services for nonprofit and purpose-driven businesses.

Since 2021, we partnered with Bagels and Joe to bring Lincoln’s favorite bagels and coffee downtown. Through their extraordinary generosity, 10% of every dollar goes directly toward serving the Foundry Community’s mission.
