What is Omaha Gives?

Omaha Gives! is a year-round online giving platform organized by the Omaha Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie counties. Each year, there is a 24-hour online giving event in May to celebrate nonprofits. This year's giving day will take place on Wednesday, May 24, 2017. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24-hours to give as much as possible to support the work of public 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the metro area. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Prizes and challenge funds amplify charitable donations to make each dollar go further. Search profiles of participating nonprofits and track progress during the event on our leaderboard. Last year, the community raised nearly $9 million for local nonprofits. 

All donations will be processed through this website. In order to participate, nonprofits must meet our eligibility requirements and will be required to register in early 2017. For more details, please read the Frequently Asked Questions. You can view results from previous years on omahafoundation.org. For general Omaha Gives! questions contact: katrina@omahafoundation.org. For questions regarding credit card donations on this site, contact a member of our finance team:  amy@omahafoundation.org, melisa@omahafoundation.org, or yvette@omahafoundation.org
