Local nonprofits win new support in “Do Good” takeover powered by SHARE Omaha


Giving Tuesday 2019, powered by SHARE Omaha, turned out to be a memorable day for local nonprofits in Omaha and Council Bluffs. Organizer Marjorie Maas said results from the first-ever “do good takeover” tell a promising story.
 
Opportunities to hear about Giving Tuesday multiplied, from a few hundred thousand in 2018 to upwards of seven million this year, according to media and advertising metrics tracked by Universal Information Services. 15-second commercials and some 200 SHARE Omaha members invited everyone in the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area to do some good and be part of Giving Tuesday. The global generosity movement now inspires over 200 community campaigns nationwide.

As a connector of the metropolitan area’s nonprofit organizations and public supporters, SHARE Omaha is happily spreading the word that it is leasing physical space in both Omaha and Council Bluffs. SHARE Omaha will spend half the week at the Scott Technology Center in Omaha’s centralized Aksarben Village (6825 Pine Street) and the balance of time in Council Bluffs subleasing from The 712 Initiative (1228 S. Main Street).
 
“We are a common ground for nonprofit organizations’ needs being met across a wide geographic area. What better physical and symbolic message to try officing amongst the nonprofit community and having dedicated time in both states of our service territory? It greatly excites our team to pilot this cross-river effort,” said Marjorie Maas, executive director of SHARE Omaha.
