What Is A Life Worth?
The Nebraska Safety Council provides services to hundreds of businesses. Our impact on safety and wellness in 2021 included:
- 345 teenagers learned how to drive safely, with 40 low-income students receiving stipends to offset the price of the class.
- 3,729 individual 20-minute health coaching sessions were provided.
- 33 health-care providers and first responders received training on how to properly wear respirators during the pandemic (Respiratory Fit Training).
What does this mean?
It means that people get to go home to their families and eat burnt meatloaf, argue with their teenagers, cry at their daughter’s wedding, and make mud pies with their grandchildren.
The Nebraska Safety Council has been saving lives for 61 wonderful years. We manage with minimal resources. Our staff are passionate about their work and do it well! While many think membership or training fees are enough, unfortunately, some of our competitors can offset the cost of classes with tax revenue to support services. There is space in this field for all of us. We still have people getting hurt at work. We still have people dying prematurely from lifestyle-related illnesses. And tragically, we still have teen drivers dying far too young.
The Nebraska Safety Council does not receive any tax support. Membership dues account for 13% of our total budget. Grant dollars cover 13% of the budget. Sponsorships through the Nebraska Safety Council comprise only 3% of our annual budgetary needs. Fundraising and sponsorships for similar non-profit organizations typically make up 25-90% of their operational budgets.
