About the Viking Foundation of Lincoln

The Viking Foundation of Lincoln of Lincoln is a benevolent entity established to help people. Following a long Eggland family tradition, the Foundation seeks to provide financial assistance to young people and families. This support will only be provided to other 501(c)(3) organizations in three counties in

  • Nebraska (Lancaster),
  • Iowa (Polk) and
  • Colorado (Denver)

in the form of modest need-based grants directed to individuals (especially children) and families challenged with education, poverty, housing, gender, mental and physical health, and other issues. The areas of support and core values will be sustained in perpetuity, unchanged by future Boards of Directors of the Foundation. The Foundation's objective is to remain as flexible and creative as possible, in the context of the mission, regarding the nature, size and purpose of the grants awarded.

Grant Information

Five to fifteen grants will normally be awarded annually to relatively small and usually local organizations on a competitive basis as a result of the Board of Directors' evaluation of proposals. Preference will generally be given to proposals requesting support in the $5,000 - $10,000 range.
