Phoenix Academy is proud to again be participating in Omaha Gives! a 24-hour charitable challenge organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. Last year Omaha Gives! 2013 was over the top successful for Omaha and for Phoenix Academy. We were able to purchase Chromebooks and create a computer lab with the $33,000 plus we received in donations, matching funds and prizes! Read more here: C is for Chromebook and here: How Chromebooks Have Enhanced Learning at Phoenix Academy.
This years online only giving event will take place May 21, 2014 from midnight to midnight. Mark your calendars and help us be even more successful this year! We want to raise funds to add new technology to compliment our whiteboards! We will be joining over 550 local nonprofits in raising funds and competing for matching dollars and prize money. The more money we raise, the more matching funds we will receive. The more unique donors that give to us, the more likely we are to win prize money.
How can I give/participate you ask? It’s easy and here’s how –
- Donate on May 21st! Go to our Omaha Gives Donation page to donate to Phoenix Academy on May 21st between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. The minimum donation is only $10 ($25 minimum for matching funds). Every hour that someone makes a donation to Phoenix Academy of $10 or more, we will be entered into a drawing for a $1000 prize compliments of Omaha Steaks. Last year we won the $1000 the very first hour! Let’s do it again – We need and would love to have a unique donor for each hour of the 24 event!
- Spread the word! Tell your family & friends that you will be giving to Phoenix Academy during Omaha Gives! and ask for their support.
- Post about Omaha Gives! on your social media pages. Let your friends and followers know how they can give and how their donations can help us win matching funds and prizes. Share Phoenix Academy’s posts and use #OmahaGives. Wait – are you following us on Facebook at PhoenixAcademyOmaha.org and on Twitter at PhoenixAcademyO? If not there is no time like the present!
- Cheer us on! On May 21st, watch the Leaderboard on Omahagives24.org and update our progress on social media.
Your 100% tax-deductible gift is much appreciated, as is your help to spread the word about Omaha Gives! and Phoenix Academy. Thank you!
