And they’re off! College Possible Omaha is proud to be participating in Omaha Gives! – a 24 hour charitable challenge organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. The online giving holiday will take place May 21st from midnight to midnight. Mark your calendars because we will need your help!
We will be joining over 550 local nonprofits in raising support and competing for matching funds and prize money. The more money we raise, the larger percentage of the match pool we will receive. The more donors we get to give to us, the more likely we are to win prize money.
Omaha Gives! is a one day event led by the Omaha Community Foundation to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits through online fundraising. It is a community-wide event to show off Omaha’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this city great.
Last year we raised over $6,000 for College Possible Omaha! This year we hope to surpass that amount so we can continue supporting the students in our program as they reach for their college aspirations. Students served by College Possible have set the goal of a college degree as their finish line; you can cheer them on. With your help, the finish line is within reach!
