On November 19, 2018, The Omaha World-Herald reported on the operations of Nebraska Wind Symphony, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Ex-treasurer of Nebraska Wind Symphony sentenced to probation for embezzling more than $18,000." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Omaha World-Herald article.

  • On September 11, 2017, The Omaha World-Herald published an article titled, "Papillion woman who's accused of stealing more than $18,000 from Nebraska Wind Symphony held on $25,000 bail." For more information, please see The Omaha World-Herald article.

The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites.
