State of local fundraising and what your dollars can do


On October 23, 2023, we asked SHARE Omaha nonprofit members two questions: How does your fundraising compare to this time in 2022 and how many new $100 donors do you need?

Thanks to the 149 respondents, this is what we learned:

State of Fundraising


The majority of local nonprofit respondents say that their fundraising is down compared to this time in 2022.

However, here's the great news!

Over 80% of nonprofits say they need fewer than 200 new $100 donors to raise the finances needed to continue their vital work in our neighborhoods.

This is so do-able! It is where we all come in, giving together to turn gifts of all sizes into bigger giving than we've ever seen before. If each one of us raises our hands to give what we can, to what we care about... Imagine.

Take a moment to consider the new-to-you causes you've thought about supporting. And the amazing nonprofits you see changing our region for the better. What can you contribute? Every gift, no matter the size, builds the forward momentum our metro needs.
