Collective Giving

Together, we can accomplish so much more.

As a member of the Omaha Community Foundation, you’re already teaming up with other philanthropists to make a greater impact in the community.

If you’d like to focus on specific charitable goals, the Foundation can help you find and connect with other likeminded donors. It may even be useful to set up a giving circle or field-of-interest fund.

Our experience with these projects – and our status as a community foundation – allow us to coordinate collective giving efforts with much less complication. And we’re excited to help. We love it when a spark of generosity bursts into flame.

Family Giving

The most common type of collective giving is among families. Philanthropy is an excellent way to teach young people the value of giving, and an ongoing charitable project can bring you together even after children grow up and start families of their own. At the Omaha Community Foundation, we work with a number of family funds and projects. We can help you prioritize your goals, together, and guide you to the type of giving that best fits your family. As always, we’ll handle the administrative duties and the paperwork.

Giving Circles

Giving circles allow you to pool your money with other donors, while working together to choose charities and projects to support. It’s a way to get more involved in the charitable process and meet new people – while also learning more about the needs and nonprofits in our community. Do you have an idea for a giving circle? We’d be happy to help you get started.

Omaha Gives!

Omaha Gives! is an annual, city-wide holiday dedicated to charitable giving – and sponsored by the Omaha Community Foundation. The goal is to increase enthusiasm and participation in philanthropy throughout the community, while making a big difference for local nonprofits. It’s an example of collective giving on a large scale.
