Supporting oci means supporting local artists

Omaha Creative Institute supports local artists by providing access to resources like professional development and grant opportunities. Your gifts make our work possible – by providing the necessary funds for operations and programming, and allowing us to innovate and be responsive to our local artist community.  Please help advance our important work and include OCI in your giving.

Become a sustaining donor by making a monthly contribution to OCI. Having reliable, recurring donations allow us to put more energy into creating an Omaha where artists are able to live and work sustainably.

Did you know that over $2 billion is donated through corporate matching gift programs every year, but only about 1 in 10 eligible donors match their donations? Since many companies may match up to $10,000 for every donation, the revenue adds up quickly for small nonprofits like OCI. Click here or ask your employer if they have a matching gift program!
