The Greatest Need Grant program has evolved as a means for the Omaha Community Foundation to be responsive to the most pressing needs of the nonprofits in the Omaha community. Applicants are invited to identify their organization’s greatest need and propose a plan to address it. Greatest Need Grants fall into one of three broad areas:

  • Capacity Building – the improvement of capabilities, knowledge or resources so an agency can achieve its mission more effectively
  • General Operating Expenses – purchase of equipment, staff salaries, marketing, etc.
  • Programs – new or ongoing programs that respond to a demonstrated community need
