Spotlight on the OSF

Welcome to the Omaha Public Schools Foundation website presenting our award winning programs and success stories. Founded in 1984 by the Omaha Board of Education, the Omaha Schools Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (C3) organization, governed by a Board of Directors (all residents of the Omaha School District), and incorporated under Nebraska Law as a nonprofit corporation. At the most basic level, the Omaha Schools Foundation exists to raise funds for projects and programs which cannot be funded by tax dollars.

We are excited to share our enthusiasm for the Omaha Public Schools amazing students, administrators, teachers and curriculums and encourage you to participate in supporting the many programs and scholarships which facilitate the success of our students.
