If you’ve been waiting for a good time to donate to a local charity, today is a good day to give.
The Omaha Community Foundation is working with more than 300 local nonprofits on Omaha Gives! — a 24-hour online fundraising drive that runs through midnight.
The timing matters because the foundation has secured more than a half-million dollars in matching funds for donors’ gifts of $10 or more. Another $65,000 in prize money is available to participating nonprofit organizations of varied sizes, so your gift could unlock quite a bit of help.
Whether you want to fight heart disease or hunger, whether you want to support the visual arts or the performing kind, there is a charity worth your hard-earned dollars at OmahaGives24.org.
Take 10 minutes. Figure out which giving will best suit your tastes. And help the foundation multiply your generosity.
