Omaha Gives! is a 24-hour online fundraising event led by the Omaha Community Foundation to support local nonprofits through online fundraising. It is a community-wide effort to show off Omaha’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this city great.
The 24-hour donation period will be May 21st from midnight to midnight. All gifts will be processed online through the Omaha Community Foundation via omahagives24.org.
Last year Food Bank for the Heartland participated in the inaugural Omaha Gives! and received $52,278.59 from generous supporters, plus matching funds from the Omaha Community Foundation. The Food Bank was one of the top nonprofit finishers, thanks to our tremendous donors. Last year the community came together to raise over $3 million for local nonprofits.
