Mutual of Omaha Foundation 2022 Community Investment Numbers

February 9, 2023

(OMAHA, Neb.) – Last year, the Mutual of Omaha Foundation granted more than $6.2 million to 120 local nonprofit organizations. The Foundation continues to operate with a mission to break the cycle of poverty and invest in projects that strengthen the Omaha metropolitan area. Organizations and projects that received grants primarily focus on basic needs, adult self-efficiency and youth development.

"Our nation’s mental health crisis continues to escalate, impacting every community across America. The pandemic heightened our awareness of these issues and underscored the gap in available services for so many in need,” said Gail Graeve, executive director of the Mutual of Omaha Foundation. “In response, the Foundation prioritized $1 million in new investments to increase access to mental health resources for children and adults. Community Alliance and the Mental Health Innovation Foundation are grantees who understand the core issues and are committed to ensuring a patient experience that creates a lifelong pathway of healing, management and wellness."

Other highlights of the Foundation’s 2022 giving include:

  • Invested $500,000 in a capital campaign at Child Saving Institute to expand their space to meet the growing demand for youth-related services
  • $100,000 in support to the American National Red Cross for emergency disaster support for several weather-related events across the U.S.
  • Nearly $200,000 in matching gifts, supporting personal charitable donations made by our associates
