Our Giving Tuesday Project & “24 Hours of Impact” Community Service Event – Please Join Us!

Energy is a major expense for food pantries, homeless shelters, children’s homes and other nonprofits in our communities that provide a hand up for people in need. Raising funds and installing solar on their rooftops through our Green Watts for Good program is a way everyone can help them save on their electricity bills each month for a very long time, paying back your donations many times over, as solar panels are made to last 25 or more years.

For our Giving Tuesday project, Nebraskans for Solar is partnering with Heartland Hope Mission, a nonprofit that provides basic needs and job opportunities to approximately 45,000 people throughout the year, helping them to become self-sufficient. Your contributions will be used to install a solar photovoltaic system on their building at 2021 U Street on or before Earth Day, April 22, 2020.

Three Ways You Can Help

Make a tax-deductible contribution on our SHARE Omaha Page. Our goal is to raise $10,000. Nebraskans for Solar will match contributions up to a total of $10,000.

An alternative or additional way you can help is to join Nebraskans for Solar and Heartland Hope Mission volunteers for our Giving Tuesday “24 Hours of Impact” community service project. We are co-hosting a drive to collect:

Green Watts for Good – Our Omaha Gives! Fundraiser

This year-round platform connects those who want to keep the giving going and area organizations working to create change in a big way! It only takes a $10 donation to join the community giving. Be sure to save the date for Omaha’s 7th annual 24-hour charitable challenge set for May 22.

About Green Watts for Good
Our Green Watts for Good Program supports solar initiatives in our communities. Our goal is to install photovoltaic (PV) systems in partnership with other local nonprofits, to not only protect our environment, but also to enable people to save money through solar systems.

To date, we have enough money in our Green Watts for Good Fund to install two 4-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) systems, and we have presented project ideas to the leaders of two local nonprofits. When installation dates are set, we will immediately announce them and extend an invitation to the community for a post-installation open house.

Every 2019 Omaha Gives! contribution will go toward a third Green Watts for Good solar installation. An alternative or additional way you can help is to share information about our Omaha Gives! campaign with your family and friends.

Generous Donation Jumpstarts Our New Green Watts for Good Initiative!

We are happy to announce that two local philanthropists, who wish to remain anonymous, have generously donated $6,500 to our Green Watts for Good Fund, fulfilling our goal to install a 4-kilowatt PV system on a demonstration home!

Our goal now is to raise another $6,500 through our Green Watts for Good Campaign during Omaha Gives’ Sixth Annual Charitable Challenge!

Nebraskans for Solar is an all-volunteer organization, and so 100% of Omaha Gives contributions will go toward our major goal to establish a revolving account in an effort to provide clean, abundant green energy. We will partner with local nonprofits, like Habitat for Humanity of Omaha and others, not only to protect our environment, but also to save families money through solar systems.

Omaha Gives’ Sixth Annual 24-Hour Charitable Challenge presented by American National Bank is set for May 23, 2018. The giving begins at midnight with a minimum $10 donation and hourly drawings and prizes that make your donations go further.

There are three ways to give:

  • Schedule donations at Omaha Gives.Org by May 22, and they will be processed on May 23.
  • Make your donation on May 23 from 12:00 am through 12:00 am May 24.
  • Or do both!
