What will your legacy be?

Special message from Howard N. Epstein regarding the coronavirus situation and Foundation staff working remotely:

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to dramatically impact all of our daily lives, including the day-to-day business of the Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation.  We are making business decisions with the health and welfare of our Foundation staff, supporters and donors foremost in our decision making.

Following the guidance of the Douglas County Health Department, the Centers for Disease Control and other health experts, the Foundation staff will be working remotely from our homes, and the Foundation office will be closed until further notice.

While we will not be in the office, we will be working every day from our homes.  We will be able to access our phones, our files, and our computers remotely and we are dedicated to continuing to provide top-notch service and support during this most extraordinary time. You may contact any of the Foundation staff at our usual telephone numbers and email addresses.

We will update you as the COVID-19 situation evolves.  And we thank you for your ongoing, generous support.

The Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation strives to help assure the stability and continuity of Jewish life and to support communal services in the Omaha area.  When you support the Foundation, your gifts will help ensure a sound financial future for Omaha’s Jewish community, while giving you the opportunity to achieve your personal philanthropic goals.  Your gift is always welcome and appreciated.

Whether you are adding to your existing fund at the Foundation or establishing a new fund to meet your current and long-term philanthropic goals, our entire Foundation staff is ready, willing and able to assist you, and we welcome your call. My direct line is 402-334-6466.
