Invest in Success
The Omaha Schools Foundation is currently accepting requests for the funding of classroom projects designed by Principals and Teachers to enhance the curriculum and promote the success of their students.
Day in and day out the Principals and Teachers of the Omaha Public Schools are creating innovative curriculum strands to stimulate and enrich their students' learning. Often these projects are under-funded or the school is not able to implement it at all due to lack of resources.
The key mission of the Omaha Schools Foundation is to provide students and staff of the Omaha Public Schools academic programs, enrichment activities and professional opportunities which are beyond the budget constraints of the Omaha School District. Accomplishment of this mission supports the curriculum of the Omaha Public Schools and helps sustain this community's tradition of excellence in integrated living and learning.
To carry out this mission, the Omaha Schools Foundation seeks private and corporate contributions and gifts. The Foundation is unique in that, unlike many available fund-raising platforms, it does not charge any fees associated with making a donation or using the Omaha Schools Foundation Social Media to promote classroom project requests.
Once your project has been approved we will post your request online and a donation form will be created. Use the Search Tool below to find a project.
Invest in Success: Funding Classroom Projects
Fuel for Active Lifestyles
Some of our OPS students need financial assistance because their families don't qualify for free or reduced lunch and therefore these students are not getting the nutrition they need to complete their school day. We have established an account for donations to assist these students as healthy nutritious meals enhance their academic performance and provide fuel for active lifestyles.
If you would like your donation to benefit a specific school, please write in the name of the school in the field, "Donate to a Specific School."
Thank you for your consideration of this request as we strive to serve all of our OPS students by attending to their physical, emotional and academic needs.
South High Show Choir Needs Your Help
This year, the South High Ambassadors are competing throughout Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri. As an ensemble, we are excited to compete against groups we do not typically see! From costume changes to arrangements, character shoes and show bands, show choir can be very expensive. Our school administration has provided not only financial support but active encouragement as we strive to make the 2017-2018 edition of the Ambassadors the best we can be.
Digital Portfolios to Measure Classroom Growth
Annette Willett needs your help. She would like to add 6 Apple iPads to her first-grade classroom resource library. The iPads will give her students access to programs that reinforce math and reading skills. These programs help differentiate learning to better meet the individual learning needs of her first-graders. The iPads will help Annette's students build digital portfolios to be shared with their parents and guardians. The portfolios and learning programs will also show growth throughout the year.
