OMAHA GIVES! 

Omaha Gives! is a year-round online giving platform organized by the Omaha Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawatomie counties. Each year, a 24-hour online giving event in May celebrates participating nonprofits. Next year’s giving day will take place on May 20, 2020!   Select our club:   American Italian Heritage Society

The goal of Omaha Gives! is to inspire our community to come together for 24-hours to give as much as possible to support the work of public 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the metro area. The minimum donation is $1 and there is no maximum. Prizes and Challenge Funds amplify charitable donations to make each dollar go even further. To find a nonprofit to celebrate, search and review the profiles of participating nonprofits.

Honorarium and Memorial Gifts
A contribution given in someone’s honor is a wonderful way of commemorating a special day or event, or just giving thanks for someone special in your life. Giving a contribution in the name of someone who has passed away is a beautiful way to pay tribute to his or her love of Italian culture.

When you give an honorarium or memorial gift, the person honored or the family of the person memorialized will receive an acknowledgement of your tax-deductible gift. Your token of appreciation recognizes that person’s contribution to our efforts and at the same time it broadens and continues their legacy by supporting our organization.
