Give, Volunteer, Inspire: Finding Your Fit With SHARE Omaha

Omaha is a philanthropic city. The people of this city – and the businesses – love to give. Now more than ever, though, Omaha nonprofits need your support. SHARE Omaha was founded to help nonprofits deliver on their missions by inspiring us all to take action every day. And during Do Good Days, they’re encouraging everyone to step it up.

Volunteering in Omaha

Before SHARE Omaha, it was not easy to find volunteer opportunities that were a good fit. I looked to familiar organizations to see how I could help, but sometimes, it wasn’t a good fit. My availability didn’t work with their needs or I just wasn’t capable of committing the amount of time needed. 

With SHARE Omaha, you can search for the opportunity that fits you best. Search categories include:

  • Group Size
  • Suitable for kids
  • Volunteer setting
  • Accessibility
  • Who it helps
  • Skill set needed
  • Causes
  • Impact

The search function makes it pretty easy to narrow down choices. My daughter used it to find something she could do to help animals regularly. She’s hoping to be the newest volunteer for NALA Rescue. Since she’s not old enough to do kitty clean-up on her own yet, I’ll be joining her.

SHARE Omaha helps Dodge, Douglas, Sarpy, Saunders and Washington county nonprofits fulfill their missions by recruiting donors to share money, material goods and time. It’s an amazing resource for people who want to start volunteering but don’t know where to start! 

FYI: SHARE Omaha does not keep any percent of the money donated using its platform.

About Do Good Days

SHARE Omaha is looking to grow volunteerism during Do Good Days during April 24-27, 2024. Nonprofits across the midlands desperately need to expand their volunteer base. I’ve signed my family up! I’m hoping my readers can also help with the goal of 2,000 volunteer sign-ups during the four days.

It’s really easy to register. Let’s say you want to sign up your family. If you have teens, you could sign up to help at the Heartland Hope Mission South O Pantry. Or if you have younger kids, Immigrant Legal Center + Refugee Empowerment Center needs volunteers to help make first-aid kits for refugees.

And Do Good Days also provides opportunities to learn more about organizations by taking a tour, attending an open house, or taking part in a fundraiser event. There are even a couple of races planned during Do Good Days that count toward meeting the volunteer goal.

If you can’t volunteer during Do Good Days, there’s another way to help: “give good.” Gifts of $31.80 or more double the power of each volunteer hour served during Do Good Days. Go to shareomaha.org to donate today!
