    Is this right? UNL Foundation is almost 4 times bigger than ISU Foundation?

    The Long-Term Pool performance for fiscal year to date is a positive 18.1 percent. This brings the value of the pool to roughly $475 million.

    The [UNL] foundation now controls roughly $1.7 billion in total assets, its highest-ever total after a two-year recessionary dip related to the market plunge and reduced giving.

    Won't be long before UNL tops ISU in the U.S. News & World Report rankings.

    Depends how US News looks at the money. It does not all belong to UNL. That number is for all the Nebraska Universities including UNMC, UNO, and the other state schools.

    The NU system does make good financial sense for the state because it allows the different universities to pool resources and share some overhead costs.

    Politically it is a nightmare. The 3 main schools do not get along and the other smaller state schools feel like they are getting the short end of the stick. It gets really complicated to manage when a donor like Warren Buffet gives money to UNO and UNL wants to use it and they can't because it would violate the terms of the donation.
