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.

Requests

To make a request, teachers and principals should go to our online request form found here:

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.
