Why the Omaha Award Exists
The Omaha Award aims to energize Omaha's philanthropic spirit by encouraging nonprofit organizations to improve the community collaboratively. Striving to stretch the mileage of each charitable dollar spent, annual grants can be used to improve any facet of community life from education to the environment as long as they propose a creative way to resolve an unmet need in the Omaha area. Grants may be awarded for both new and existing programs and services. Omaha Award founders Suzanne and Walter Scott seek non-profit organizations that will approach and enact solutions collaboratively and with undying innovation.
