Iowa West Foundation announces continued support of SHARE Omaha

Written by Katie Fourney    on July 8, 2020    in

The Iowa West Foundation Board of Directors recently approved $6.2 million in grants and initiatives that will make transformational impacts in southwest Iowa. Included in the funds is a second year of support for SHARE Omaha’s operations.

SHARE Omaha is a nonprofit community initiative offering opportunities to do good across the eight-county Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area since January 2019. SHAREomaha.org makes giving easy by connecting generous people with nonprofit partners, including 40+ organizations in Pottawattamie, Harrison and Mills Counties, dedicated to the greatest needs in their communities.

“SHARE Omaha proudly encompasses and is dedicated to serving the whole of the metro area, and we take this Iowa West Foundation investment in our southwest Iowa work very seriously. Our appreciation for the second year of support bolsters our efforts, and we look forward to even more engagement showing results with Iowa metro partners, both community and nonprofit members,” said Marjorie Maas, executive director.
 
Thank you for your support, Iowa West Foundation!
