At SHARE Omaha, our “why” is to help nonprofits fulfill their missions by recruiting givers to share money, time and items. This is our guiding light and the reason we stay so enthusiastic about our work. We see incredible changes and lives improved as a result of people like you taking action on this site. We want you to experience this, too, and an important opportunity is coming up on November 30: Giving Tuesday. (Locally, we call this day #GivingTuesday402 in the Omaha metro and #GivingTuesday712 in Southwest Iowa and it wouldn't happen without our presenting sponsors Core Bank and TS Bank.)

Gloves that give: Ways to help others this #GivingTuesday712

Written by Katie Fourney    on November 24, 2020    in
Many local area businesses will be supporting #GivingTuesday712 to harness the power of good in Southwest Iowa. Businesses are getting creative in finding ways to assist others! Hear from Becca Wiggins with Dusted Charm on their plans for #GivingTuesday712 on December 1st.
 

What caused you to get involved in #GivingTuesday712? 

 
Giving back through time, talent or treasure has been part of the Dusted Charm “why” and mission since opening 2.5 years ago. The passion we have for giving back locally stems from the wonderful people in Southwest Iowa who rallied around my family in a time of significant need when we were faced with a devastating terminal diagnosis with our first-born child. My goal from that point forward was to someday create a local platform that would allow me to pay the selfless gift of giving forward. 
 

Pottawattamie County Community Foundation matches 20% for #GivingTuesday712

Written by Katie Fourney    on November 22, 2020    in
For #GivingTuesday712 on December 1, SHARE Omaha is thrilled to partner with Pottawattamie County Community Foundation (PCCF) to engage all Southwest Iowa nonprofits and community supporters.

To increase the power of the day, PCCF is generously adding a 20% match when donors use the code PCCF2020 at SHAREomaha.org, when the nonprofit adds to their PCCF endowment fund. This gift could add an additional $250,000 of support for Southwest Iowa organizations! 

The Council Bluffs metro helps one another, cares about each other. SHARE Omaha and PCCF believe that kind of optimism needs a celebration – a day with its own focus. Donna Dostal, president and CEO of Pottawattamie County Community Foundation, says she wants to inspire a giving spirit. “Generosity has many forms. Our community can grow its existing reputation for giving back on Giving Tuesday. We want to ignite that good.”
