Board of Directors

The Omaha Community Foundation was created by a group of residents who wanted to make a positive investment in the community. Our leadership reflects that goal, with board members representing many different businesses, neighborhoods, backgrounds and interests—united in their commitment to making Omaha and Southwest Iowa a better place to live.
