Omaha Gives 2017

OmahaGives2017-buttonDear Caring Friends,

From midnight until midnight on Wednesday, May 24, 2017, the Omaha Community Foundation will sponsor their fifth annual Omaha Gives! — a 24-hour online giving event designed to grow philanthropy in our community and support the work of charitable organizations like the Siena/Francis House Homeless Shelter.

Each year, the Omaha Gives! event becomes the single largest fundraising day in the history of our organization. Will you please consider making an online gift to our shelter on May 24 to help make this year's event a similar success?

The reason it is so important to donate to Siena/Francis House, via Omaha Gives, on May 24th is because every dollar you donate will be matched - dollar-for dollar - up to $110,000, essentially doubling your gift to our shelter. These matching "challenge" funds have been provided by generous local donors.

You may schedule your Omaha Gives! gift to the Siena/Francis House, anytime through May 23. All scheduled gifts will be processed on May 24. The link to the Siena/Francis House's Omaha Gives profile page, where you can schedule your credit card donation, can be found here: https://www.omahagives.org/sienafrancis.

In addition to the one-to-one matching dollars, the Omaha Community Foundation will give away 24 hourly prizes from midnight to midnight on May 24. Each hour, two organizations that had received a donation the previous hour will be randomly selected to receive an additional $535. Making your donation to the Siena/Francis House during the early morning hours on Wednesday May 24—when the pool of organizations receiving donations may be smaller—may increase the chance that our shelter may be randomly selected to receive one of these 24 hourly prizes. Also, organizations with the most unique number of Omaha Gives donors during the three 8-hour periods on May 24 are eligible to win additional participation prize monies, secured by the Omaha Community Foundation. All gifts to Siena/Francis House via Omaha Gives must be made at https://www.omahagives.org/sienafrancis. The minimum donation that day is $10.

Again, your generous gift to the Siena/Francis House will be matched—dollar for dollar—up to $110,000! In short, your donation to the Siena/Francis House will be doubled when you make your gift via Omaha Gives!

Thank you for your support of the Siena/Francis House through Omaha Gives! on Wednesday, May 24!

With gratitude,

Mike Saklar
Siena/Francis House Executive Director
