What a blessing it is to serve the amazing mission of campus ministry–inviting others to Christ and the community that bears His name! On May 22nd, Nebraska Lutheran Campus Ministry in Omaha (NeMO!) will participate in Omaha Gives!
Omaha Gives! is a year-round online giving platform organized by the Omaha Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie counties. Each year, there is a 24-hour online giving event to celebrate nonprofits. This year’s giving day will take place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24-hours to give as much as possible to support the work of public 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the metro area. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Prizes and challenge funds amplify charitable donations to make each dollar go further. Last year, the community raised nearly $9 million for local nonprofits. Will you join in this amazing day of giving and walk along side us as we serve students across Omaha?
Ways you can support our students and community:
$150 will support a Peer Minister’s stipend for one month.
$100 will send a student to the national student gathering over Christmas break. The last two were in Memphis and Chicago with 80 students participating.
$100 will fund a “Visit Seminary” trip for students.
$100 will help host a barbecue for the students and board members at the end of the spring semester to meet together and share ideas about the ministry.
$75 provides a “Welcome Incoming Freshmen” pizza party event this fall.
$50 will cover a lunch meal in the UNO student union cafeteria for Pastor Jim and students once a month.
$40 will sponsor our weekly snacks at the NeMO meetings.
$25 will give a Peer Minister money to buy coffee for students and visit with them about our ministry.
