Giving Tuesday Bonus Fund


Omaha Steaks is leading a Business for Giving leadership group for this year’s Giving Tuesday celebration on November 29, 2022. To date, this group has contributed $67,500 to the Giving Tuesday Bonus Fund to be divided among our region's nonprofit participants and you can help your favorite causes receive a portion!


Giving Tuesday is the biggest giving day of the year in our region. This is our community’s most significant opportunity to rally together and raise the support our 700+ nonprofit organizations need. Giving Tuesday 2021 in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro raised $5.5 million from all sources, in partnership with community foundations and reporting offline gifts. Plan your Giving Tuesday gifts now to help our community surpass this level of investment – bonus funds will stretch your dollar even further. 


The Giving Tuesday Bonus Fund distribution will:

  1. Be donor focused, rather than dollar focused – bonus dollars will be distributed based on number of donors
  2. Emphasize new donors – self-reported new donors will have a bit more value in our bonus fund distribution equation
  3. “Level the playing field” by capping the amount of bonus dollars per nonprofit at 10% of the total fund


In addition, donations during Power Hours on November 29th from 10-11am, 1-2pm and 4-5pm will also hold slightly more value. Learn more about Giving Tuesday and start planning your giving today!
