SHARE Omaha Website Launches, Highlights Needs of Local Non-Profits
SHARE Omaha launched a new website (shareomaha.org) to help non-profits in the Omaha and Council Bluffs area to connect generosity with need. The website officially went live on Thursday, January 17. The site includes information about what local non-profits need in terms of volunteers, monetary donations, or items. Nearly 200 non-profits are listed on the site. There are also over 260 volunteer opportunities to explore and 1,630 much-needed products currently listed which can be bought for non-profits and shipped directly to their door.
The SHARE Omaha site features non-profits in Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge, Saunders, and Washington counties in Nebraska, along with organizations in Pottawattamie, Mills, and Harrison counties in Iowa. David Scott of the Suzanne & Walter Scott Foundation proposed the idea in Omaha after seeing a similar project in North Carolina.
SHARE Omaha Executive Director Marjorie Maas says the platform has an all-inclusive approach and lists various organizations, regardless of their size, cause, or budget. The goal is to engage a new audience and foster the donors who will sustain and advance the metro’s philanthropic future.
