Community Interest Funds 2022 Impact Report

Oct 13, 2022
  • Description

The Omaha Community Foundation awarded 87 grants totaling $845,000 to local nonprofits and neighborhood groups through our five Community Interest Funds, which includes the:

  • African American Unity Fund
  • LGBTQIA2S+ Equality Fund
  • Futuro Latino Fund
  • Refugee Community Grant Fund
  • Omaha Neighborhood Grants Program

Grants made through our Community Interest Funds are strategic investments meant to increase access, equity, and opportunity. We engage everyday community members to lead grant processes, and we rely on them to exercise and apply their own power and understanding.

Each committee is made up of residents who come from or identify with the population being served. They review proposals, and based on the needs they are seeing in their communities, they decide which projects will have the greatest impact.
