Philanthropy: For the greater good – Omaha’s legacy of giving continues in old and new hands


Money makes the world go round.  It may not buy happiness, but it sure helps to have some when it’s most needed.  All manner of causes and endeavors need a helping hand from those privileged enough to have a surplus and to have a generous nature in sharing those riches.  It is the rare nonprofit in this or any town that can survive without the aid of benefactors and philanthropists.  These charitable givers help keep the lights on, fund programs and services, and otherwise keep the organzations they support running and their staff employed.  This cover spread I did for the December 2015 issue of The Reader (www.thereader.com) gives a brief run down on some of Omaha’s philanthropic heavyweights, including Michael and Gail Yanney, Todd and Betiana Simon, Paul and Annette Smith and that old lion of local philanthrophy, Dick Holland.
