Project Everlast leader Kris DellaCroce and NCFF’s Wendy Van accept award from WIN at last Friday’s reception.

After vetting countless worthy applications, Women Investing in Nebraska (WIN) selected Project Everlast to receive its 2013 nonprofit grant. The 76,750 provided will accelerate the work of Project Everlast Lincoln and launch the new initiative in northeast Nebraska.

Leading up to the event, Nebraska Children and Families Foundation had been advised not to share the announcement broadly. So Kris, a young woman who was instrumental in showcasing the important work of Project Everlast, hadn’t yet been informed of the honor. Her heartfelt reaction is above.

We’ll post her acceptance speech later this week.

Nebraska Children and Families Foundation supports children, young adults and families at risk with the overall goal of giving our state's most vulnerable kids what they need to reach their full potential. We do this by building strong communities that support families so their children can grow up to be thriving, productive adults.
