The Sarpy Chamber is proud to empower our nonprofit members with networking, marketing, and educational resources. It’s an important part of our work, because when these organizations have the tools they need to carry out their missions, the entire community benefits. That makes it especially exciting to announce the recipients of the Sarpy Chamber Foundation’s Nonprofit Grants.
The Sarpy Chamber foundation has awarded $30,000 in grants to local nonprofits. Eligible organizations must be a 501(c)(3) and a current Sarpy Chamber member. Three $5,000 grants were given to three different organizations with large-scale fundraising campaigns. Nebraska Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation received a grant to go towards the development of their memorial, NeighborGood received a grant for their campaign to build their own facility next door to its current location, and the Sarpy County Museum’s grant will go towards the construction of a new, expanded museum facility.
In addition to supporting these major development projects, the Sarpy Chamber Foundation gave $1,000 grants to 15 other nonprofits to be used locally in conjunction with each organization’s respective missions. The $1,000 Grant Recipients are:
- 50 Mile March Foundation
- Asha’s House
- Father Flanagan’s Boys’ Home
- Fontenelle Forest
- Foster Love
- Habitat for Humanity of Omaha
- Hillcrest Foundation
- Ironhawk Juniors Triathlon Club
- Moving Veterans Forward
- Papillion Area Historical Society
- Papillion La Vista Community Schools Foundation
- Reformation at the Cross
- Rejuvenating Women
- Ronald McDonald House Charities in Omaha
- Sheltering Tree
The Sarpy Chamber Foundation grant recipients were selected by an advisory committee who reviewed all applications and awarded grants with an aim of supporting a diverse range of services and projects.
“We’re grateful to be in a community with so many unique and robust nonprofit organizations, and we’re especially grateful to be in a position to help further some of their missions with these grants,” said Sarpy Chamber President, Karen Gibler. “We’ve seen first-hand how these nonprofits change lives and better the community, and it’s an honor to help them through the Sarpy Chamber Foundation.”
