Support

Ways to Give to the WCA

 

Individual Giving

The WCA relies heavily on the generosity of community members to help sustain the agency’s programs and services. Individuals can support the WCA in a number of ways:

  • Annual Fund – General Giving

The WCA’s Annual Fund provides vital operating support for the agency. Individuals can make a one-time gift at any time of the year or set up a recurring gift (monthly, quarterly, or annually).

  • Omaha Gives!

The WCA participates in the Omaha Community Foundation’s city-wide giving day each year. Making a contribution during Omaha Gives helps the WCA qualify for prizes and matching gifts.

  • Company match on a personal contribution

Talk to your employer about matching your 100% tax deductible contribution to the WCA.

 

Special Events

The WCA holds two major special events each year, both of which raise critical operating dollars for the agency:

The Tribute to Women Luncheon in June and the Partners Guild’s tgif! event in October.

You can support the WCA through these events in several ways:

  • Purchase tickets
  • Sponsor – multiple sponsorship levels are available
  • Buy an auction item (tgif!)
  • Raise the Paddle (tgif!)

 

Business Giving

In addition to event sponsorships, there are a number of ways businesses can support and partner with the WCA.

  • Corporate Annual Fund Gift

Contributions from businesses to the WCA’s Annual Fund provide vital operating support for the agency. Like individuals, businesses can make a one-time gift or set up a recurring payment.

  • Program and Class Sponsorships

The WCA offers opportunities for businesses to sponsor specific programs and classes, providing recognition and logo placement in connection with marketing efforts. Opportunities include:

  • The Lunch and Learn Series
  • Classes and Workshops
  • Prevention and Education Presentations
  • Employee Brown Bag Lunches and Trainings

The WCA offers onsite employee trainings on a suggested donation scale, depending on the audience size and type of training. The WCA currently offers a “Domestic Violence and the Workplace” training and can customize any presentation to meet your company’s specific needs.

  • Host a Clothing or Greatest Needs Drive

The WCA relies heavily on in-kind donations to fulfill clients’ basic needs. Such items include toiletries, cell phones, diapers, undergarments, coats, and clothing for the agency’s career closet. Businesses can make a large impact by hosting a drive and encouraging employees to give.

 

Challenge Match

Challenge matches can be a successful way to motivate others to give. Challenge matches are particularly effective during Omaha Gives, fundraising events, and campaigns throughout the year.
