Ethel S. Abbott lived in the State of Nebraska with residences in Lincoln, Omaha and Hyannis Nebraska. When she created the charitable foundation, which bears her name in 1972, she requested that the Board of Trustees make grants to organizations within the State of Nebraska, with primary emphasis on Lincoln, Omaha and Western Nebraska. Occasionally, there will be an exception made to the Nebraska grant area, due mainly to Ethel S. Abbott's history of giving while living.
