On May 22nd, the Omaha Community Foundation is challenging us to support to our favorite causes by donating during Omaha Gives! Over 300 local nonprofits have the chance to win matching funds and prize money for donations coming in that day.
Many of our supporters and collaborators are among the local nonprofits participating. The minimum donation online is $10. If you have a targeted amount for giving, you can ‘spread the love’ in $10 increments with several nonprofits and throughout the day.
