The West Omaha Rotary Foundation is participating in Omaha Gives - a 24 hour charitable challenge organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. We will be joining nearly 700 local nonprofits to raise money together and compete for matching funds and prize money. The more money we raise, the larger percentage of the bonus dollars we will receive. The more donors we get to give to us, the more likely we are to win prizes. The online giving will take place May 25th from midnight to midnight. Your donations collectively can result in additional matching or prize funds for our club foundation. Donations will support our programs at the Skinner Magnet Center, Skinner Skyhawk Awards, Mitten Tree Project, Senior Recognition Day, Dora Bingel Senior Center, Rotary Youth Leadership programs, Police and Fire recognition programs and other local educational, health and humanitarian projects and programs.
