At Outlook Nebraska, our mission is to positively impact everyone who is blind or visually impaired. We would not be able to do this without the help and support of everyone in our community. If you want to help us continue to help those with vision loss, check out these five ways you can assist us.
Do you want to help Omaha nonprofits? If you want to get a much more personal and rewarding experience to help Outlook Nebraska, volunteer your spare time. We are always looking for volunteers to help at our office or help blind and visually impaired teens take part in fun enrichment activities. You will get the chance to meet some inspiring people and make a difference in their lives. Here’s how you can help.
We provide youth and adult recreation programs where people with vision loss get to learn a new skill and meet new people. If you volunteer to become a recreation buddy, we partner you up one-on-one with a blind or visually impaired teen or adult. You get to meet new people and help them regain their confidence.
Do you have a couple of hours to spare? We are always looking for office support. You can assist us with office projects or duties. We can always use an extra pair of hands and eyes!
If you are a professional looking to give back, donate your time by mentoring someone with vision loss interested in your skill sets.
Throughout the year, we have two donor events open to the public – Tee It Up Fore Sight and Vision Beyond Sight. We want blind or visually impaired teens to grow up self-reliant and self-assured, so they don’t let anything stop them from reaching their dreams. Help us do so by joining us as a golfer or a sponsor at Tee It Up Fore Sight. Proceeds are directed toward Outlook Enrichment’s Programs.
Join us for an evening to benefit Outlook’s Enrichment Programs for the blind and visually impaired Friday, October 18. Our annual program and dinner is our largest fundraising event of the year, drawing the attendance of many of our community leaders and generous donors. During the event, you’ll enjoy a gourmet meal, meet some of Outlook’s visually impaired associates and clients, be inspired by keynote speaker, Chip Townsend, and cheer on Outlook Nebraska’s award winners and nominees.

Any donation can go a long way — more than 75 percent of those we serve come from low to moderate-income households. We are always looking for donations to offset the cost of adaptive technology training or to send a blind or visually impaired teen to camp. Donate here!
