The First Responders Foundation is excited to be participating in Omaha Gives, a 24-hour online giving event organized by the Omaha Community Foundation to grow philanthropy and inspire the community to come together to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible within the allotted time to support the work of local nonprofit organizations.
You Can Help Support Our Mission
Please consider a donation of $10 or more to help us thank Omaha’s first responders by providing materials and equipment and funding other initiatives that support the police and fire departments. We work directly with each chief to fulfill wish lists and prioritize resources so your donation goes where it is needed most.
Omaha Gives culminates on May 25, 2016, but you can schedule your donation now. Every donation is important and helps increase our chances of taking home extra incentives such as participation prizes and hourly giveaways. Thank you for supporting Omaha’s first responders!
2) Thank a Hero!
First responders embody the very definition of heroism by putting their lives on the line for us each and every day. Police officers and firefighters are the first people on the scene when an emergency strikes. These brave men and women run towards dangerous situations to save and protect the people of our community.
Do you have a police officer or firefighter in your family or circle of friends that you admire for their dedication and want to thank for their service? Has your life been touched or saved by a first responder? Participate in our #ThankAHero campaign by nominating a first responder to be publicly thanked on our website and social media during the month of May! We will be sharing nominations in conjunction with Omaha Gives, telling your stories, and thanking these real heroes for making a difference every day.
3) Be a Social Media Advocate
You can help spread our message and inform others about the work that we are doing to help our local first responders by sharing our Omaha Gives Facebook posts and tweets!
