Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Omaha Parks Foundation recognizes the financial challenges of the Parks & Recreation Department, and presents an opportunity to gain support for special park projects that cannot be addressed by the city budget. The Foundation enables public-private partnerships, and as it evolves it will help fund a variety of park projects and impact the community in positive ways by providing destinations that encourage wellness and a healthy lifestyle. By encouraging philanthropic support and investment in a valued community resource, the Omaha Parks Foundation will facilitate the future of the city’s parks system, offering citizens the opportunity to leave a legacy for generations to come.
The Omaha Parks Foundation is an independent 501(c)3 that works with private donors and organizations to help improve the city's park system. Acitivites include: donation of equipment for local community centers, park improvements, playground renovations, day camp scholarships, and memorial trees and benches to name a few.
