The Omaha Community Foundation maintains its status as one of the top foundations in the country according to an annual survey of community foundations. The Columbus Survey analyzes the data from nearly 300 Community Foundations in compiling the list. The Omaha Community Foundation ranks 13th in terms of grants given out to the community, placing in the top 5% of community foundations.
The Omaha Community Foundation also ranks high in terms of new gifts coming into the foundation at 16th and in terms of total assets at 23rd. Those rankings put the Omaha Community Foundation within the top 10% of all community foundations in the survey.
“We had another successful year in 2011,” said Omaha Community Foundation President & CEO Mike Leighton. “Omaha is very fortunate to have generous donors who continue to donate assets to their donor-advised funds and then grant those dollars to the causes they care about.”
The Omaha Community Foundation’s donors care about a broad range of causes, with educational institutions leading the way. Educational institutions received 44% of Omaha Community Foundation grants between 2009 and 2011. Human services received 12% of grants, followed by philanthropy, arts and culture, and religion and spiritual development. OCF’s full 2011 Giving Report and Audit Report are available online.
