As presenting sponsor of #GivingTuesday402, Core Bank invites your business, family and you personally to join in giving your all to our community. John Sorrell, president and CEO of Core Bank said, “When it comes to overcoming the challenges of 2020, Core Bank is striving to be so much more than a bank. We are creating a better future for our families and small businesses. Core Bank is all in – with our dollars and with our service – for the good of the Omaha metro.”

SHARE Omaha is proud to organize the metro’s Giving Tuesday campaign to be held December 1, 2020. Marjorie Maas, SHARE Omaha executive director said, “Our Omaha-Council Bluffs metro has experienced a year that has called on non-profits to provide more services than ever before, but at the same time they’ve been hampered by not being able to hold their usual fundraising events. We are lifting up #GivingTuesday402 in the Omaha metro to help these amazing organizations.”

As presenting sponsor of #GivingTuesday402, Core Bank is leading the way by offering each employee a stipend to use for their charitable giving throughout the year. The Core Cares initiative allows employees to choose how and where their dollars are used to support those in need. "With endless ways to give, our employees' creative in the use of their funds is just as grand as their thoughtful hearts!"

The day is recognized as a global generosity movement which, lead locally by SHARE Omaha will connect non-profit organizations to those who can give financially, who want to volunteer and who can share material goods or services needed by non-profits.

Individuals, businesses, organizations and neighborhoods can all participate. Gifts can be made through SHAREomaha.org and the platform can be used to connect with a non-profit to volunteer or provide needed items. You can also explore organizations needing virtual volunteers, or join co-workers, neighbors and friends to do acts of kindness. SHARE Omaha does not have processing fees of their own however, it uses PayPal to process donations safely and the donor can “tip” the PayPal fees back to the organization.
