Nebraska Realty is deeply invested in the local communities we serve. Along with raising tens of thousands of dollars each year for local & national organizations, our Realtor’s® & staff also serve in a hands on capacity to help provide for those in need. We see charitable giving & physical community service as a way of getting to know the communities that we live in.
The Nebraska Realty Kindness Crew is a group of staff and agents within the company that organizes volunteer opportunities for our agents & their families to come together and interact with other families and local organization in the community. Whether it is helping a disabled homeowner make necessary improvements to their home or simply serving dinner to families who are forced to be far away from their own homes, our REALTOR’S® enjoy giving back in a tangible way
Not only does Nebraska Realty do physical community service, we also strongly believe we have a responsibility to provide for those that may not be able to provide for themselves. As a company, Nebraska Realty donates a portion of our revenue to many wonderful organizations, as well as raises funds through silent auctions, raffles, and collecting donations at many of our company social events throughout the year. In addition, our REALTORS® have the ability to contribute directly from their commissions to the charity of their choice. We receive numerous requests each year for donations and sponsorships, and although we feel they are all great causes, we can only help so many. We have chosen to help fight homelessness, poverty, and hunger in our local community. We also contribute to treatment, care, research, and hopefully the eventual cure of childhood cancers and disease. Finally, we very much support, and are eternally grateful for the brave men and women that serve our country in the military. They are the reason we have the freedom to raise our families, operate our business, and live in the manner that each of us chooses.
These charitable organizations include:
The Shelter Fund
A local 501c3 non-profit that donates 100% of all money collected to local homeless shelters and programs. Our company and the agents have funded the "Streets of Omaha" program that is out daily seeking individuals that are in need of food, water, or safe shelter, especially during the time of year we experience dangerously extreme temperatures.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Wounded Warrior Project
Mission: To Honor and Empower Wounded Warriors
In addition to the primary charitable organizations that we support, we also choose several other groups, charities, sponsorships, or worthy causes to contribute time or money to each year. Many of these groups are local to our community. We are a locally owned and operated company so supporting organizations that have a direct benefit in our community is very important to us. Here are some of the most recent companies we have supported:
