OOD GROWS HERE
EVERYONE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY IN HELPING OMAHA GROW
by Sara Boyd, President & CEO, Omaha Community Foundation
VERYONE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY in helping Omaha grow – in making this a stronger community and an even better place to call home. Our role is to serve as a connector, working with donors and nonprofits who love our community, believe in its future, and want to be a part of making it better.
We also help donors receive the greatest tax benefit from their gifts, whether that involves donating property or appreciated stock, or simply making a deposit to a Foundation account whenever it makes the most sense financially. This flexibility and convenience allows our donors to be more thoughtful about their giving. They can make a donation to their account and qualify for the tax benefits, then decide later where to give and what to accomplish with the funds.
We see charitable gifts as investments in the future of Omaha. And we immerse ourselves in every aspect of philanthropy—philanthropic trends, nonprofits, tax codes, financial tools—to help our donors invest as wisely as possible and connect their priorities with the needs of the community.
Through our work we inspire a culture of giving so that—together—we can grow a stronger, brighter region for all. We invest in programs like Omaha Gives! and The Landscape to understand local needs and build community in a whole new way.
At the Foundation, we simplify charitable giving by offering knowledge and a deep understanding of local nonprofits. We make it easy, providing as much or as little guidance as our donors need to reach their charitable goals. We research local issues, and share that knowledge so our donors can give with confidence. And we keep track of the financial details—offering comprehensive account management—so our donors can focus on growing more good in the community.
The Omaha Community Foundation has been active in the charitable community since 1982, and our family of donors have invested more than $1.5 billion in Omaha and southwest Iowa, supporting more than 3,000 local nonprofits.
