WHAT IS IT? Omaha Gives! is a one-day online fundraising event organized by the Omaha Community Foundation and held on May 20 to raise support for nonprofits in Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie Counties. It is a community-wide event to show off the area’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this city great. HOW DOES IT WORK? Nonprofits win bonus dollars for drumming up the most support. Hourly drawings and prizes only sweeten the give. GIVE TWO WAYS Schedule your gifts ahead of time or make donations throughout the day. Have more fun - give both ways! VISIT to donate! HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED? • Give to your favorite nonprofit, Wear Yellow Nebraska – 700 have registered to participate and the minimum donation is only $10. • Partner with local nonprofits to help them win big on May 20. • Provide EXTRA BONUS DOLLARS for your favorite nonprofit. • Schedule a donation starting May 1st or donate during the event on May 20. • Be loud and proud to show the community’s generous spirit — especially on social media with #OmahaGives! SO MANY WAYS TO SWEETEN THE GIVE! BONUS DOLLARS $350,000 will be shared by all participating nonprofits receiving donations during the event. The amount received will be based on each organization’s overall percentage of funds raised on the day of the event. If an organization receives 1% of the total funds raised that day, that organization will receive 1% of the bonus funds. Donations will qualify for the bonus up to a $10,000 limit per donor per nonprofit to prevent substantial donations from skewing the allocation of bonus funds. EXTRA BONUS DOLLARS Nonprofits will have the ability to raise and promote their own bonus funds through, providing even more reasons to support them during Omaha Gives!. OMAHA STEAKS–STEAKS FOR GOOD 24 HOURLY DRAWINGS Each hour, one donation will be randomly selected to receive an additional $1,000 added to it for a total of $24,000. Once a nonprofit has received an hourly prize, they will not be eligible to receive another one. 45 PARTICIPATION PRIZES $90,000 will be awarded to nonprofits attracting the highest number of donors in three separate categories during three 8-hour time periods throughout the day (12am-8am, 8am-4pm, 4pm-12am). Once a nonprofit has received a participation prize, they will not be eligible to receive another one. VISIT to donate!
