The Omaha Catalogue of Urban Design Philanthropy

Book Cover

The publication is thought to be the first of its kind to focus on urban design in the United States.

Omaha by Design and the Omaha Community Foundation have joined forces to introduce a new catalogue to the local market, one whose items will lead to the creation of a better city.

The Omaha Catalogue of Urban Design Philanthropy is a compendium of strategic giving opportunities that focus on the city’s natural and built environments. Its 22 projects fall under three categories – Green Omaha, Civic Omaha and Neighborhood Omaha. Each category corresponds to a component of the Urban Design Element and an Omaha by Design area of emphasis. The publication is thought to be the first of its kind to focus on urban design in the United States.

Projects for the catalogue were selected based upon their ability to bring the goals of the Urban Design Element to life. They range from establishing a parks and landscape conservancy to renovating Gene Leahy Mall to supporting a garden project focused on nutrition and preventive health education. Production of the catalogue was made possible by grants from the Fund for Omaha, the Millard Foundation, the Omaha Community Foundation, the Parker Family Foundation and the Qwest Foundation.
