May 24 is the date for OmahaGives2017.

 

The Cathedral Parish Center, (in the former Cathedral High School) will be open from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm on that day, and everyone is invited to enjoy cookies, iced tea and lemonade, as well as each other’s company. Alumni, school parents and children, and Cathedral friends and neighbors are all welcome. If you would like to make a donation at that time, we will have computers available, and we will help you log in. Donations from $10 to $10,000 will qualify for a percentage match from the Omaha Community Foundation. Your gift to Saint Cecilia Cathedral through OMAHAGIVES2017.org is fully tax deductible. The OMAHAGIVES2017 website is secure, safe and confidential for all donations.  

 


Last year we raised $50,000! And we had so many donors that we qualified for an extra $1000 bonus gift from Omaha Community Foundation. We need everyone to participate. You can donate from any place in the world, just by logging in. The event runs “round-the clock.” We also need people who are willing to make their donation in the wee early morning hours. This will help us because there are also hourly cash awards given to the non-profits, but, and this is the tricky part, we must have a donation made to us during the hour in which the award might be presented to us. That means, to be sure, we need to cover every hour, around the clock. If you are a night-owl, we really need your participation.
