On Nov. 30, the Omaha metro celebrated #GivingTuesday402. We thank you for supporting College Possible on a day that encourages us to come together to transform our community through deliberate acts of kindness and generosity. The spirit of Giving Tuesday is truly magical, and we have much to celebrate this year!
During this season of giving, nearly 40 donors made a personal investment in our student scholars who are making their way to and through college. Long-term supporters and new donors united to make this one of our most successful Giving Tuesday events to date. We are grateful for the generous support of AmeriCorps alumni, board members, community members and Champions for College Possible.
SHARE Omaha, a nonprofit organization with a mission to help other nonprofits reach their goals and change the giving culture in the Omaha metropolitan area, led #GivingTuesday402 for the metro area. Community donors raised over $5.49 million throughout the day in support of over 600 non-profits serving the Omaha metro.
We are grateful for the work SHARE Omaha has done for creating and leading these partnership opportunities for area nonprofits,” said Arvin Frazier, College Possible Omaha Executive Director. “College Possible thanks you for your endorsement and support for your community.”
Giving Tuesday is a global celebration that benefits local communities, which is one of the reasons that we love to get involved with the day. College Possible is a national organization with eight sites across the country. While we have the support of a national organization, every dollar raised for Omaha impacts Omaha students.
“I first heard about Giving Tuesday when it started ten years ago and it has always struck a chord with me because it’s at a time when we are spending money on the upcoming holiday season,” said Allyson Triplett, College Possible Omaha donor relations manager. “It helps me focus on gratitude and giving back, which is another big part of the holiday season for me and my family.”
