As everyone in fundraising knows, reaching 100 percent participation in an employee giving campaign is a rare thing. Earlier this month, Outlook Nebraska, Inc. (ONI) became one of the few nonprofit organizations holding this distinction. They reached this goal with their 65 associates, 45 of whom are blind or visually impaired, in their first-ever employee campaign, part of a greater campaign effort for renovation of their facility.
ONI is planning a renovation of its facility to create space for programs that will serve additional populations of the blind and visually impaired community: children, people facing employment issues and seniors.
We congratulate you, ONI!
ONI provides employment and workplace training to the blind and visually impaired in a converting operation that supplies a full line of 100 percent recycled fiber content tissue and towel products to the U.S. Government and other customers. The largest employer of the blind and visually impaired in Nebraska and the only agency of its kind in a seven-state region, ONI provides additional services for its associates and other members of the blind and visually impaired community, including activities, education, training and health and wellness programs.
