A huge thanks to the 32 generous donors who are helping support Nebraska Extension educational programs and services in Douglas and Sarpy counties as part of Omaha Gives! The 24-hour charitable day of giving, now in its seventh year, raised a total of $6.7 million to support community nonprofits including Friends of Foundation Extension. Thanks to you, we raised $2,855 to help in the following areas:
Please consider making a donation to Friends of Extension Foundation during Omaha Gives! Day, a 24-hour, online giving event organized annually by the Omaha Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in the metro area (Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie Counties). The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the work of local nonprofit organizations. Omaha Gives! is based on other successful giving days hosted by community foundations across the country.
Twenty-eight Friends gave in support of Friends of Foundation for the 2018 Omaha Gives! The 24-hour charitable giving day powered by the Omaha Community Foundation took place Wednesday, May 23, 2018.
Omaha Gives! is an annual 24-hour charitable challenge to benefit metro-area nonprofits beginning at midnight May 23. We are fortunate to be among the featured nonprofits. Friends of Extension & 4-H Foundation supports Nebraska Extension in Douglas/Sarpy Counties through the program areas including 4-H, Master Gardeners, ServSafe (food safety for restaurant managers and employees), training of professionals who apply pesticides and fertilizers, nutrition education and agriculture programs. Our teams share research-based information from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and assist people in using it to improve their lives and well-being.
