On Wednesday, May 25, 2016, IPL held an event in conjunction with Omaha Gives! in which 216 individuals made 230 contributions. Throughout the 24 hours of the event, IPL received $26,779 to continue forming community leaders. As a result of our gracious donors, IPL had the most donors within the last eight hours of the day, which allowed us to win a $3,000 participation prize. IPL will also receive over $1,000 from the Omaha Community Foundation in “Bonus Dollars” which a match the donations of our donors.
As a result of the Omaha Gives! event, the Institute for Public Leadership had the 5th highest participation for the day out of 170 mid-sized organizations which participated. Our generous donors contributed over $31,000 to sustain our leadership development for community leaders, including those from Omaha Together One Community. Thank you for your support.
