With more than 2,000 homeless men, women and children living on Omaha’s streets every night, Open Door Mission’s goal is to reach out a helping hand to as many as we possibly can. And you can help.

Open Door Mission is an arm of the Heartland’s church community. Through their support, many churches have commissioned us to reach out to the poor and the homeless.

1. Fundraising with Integrity

  • We will never attempt to raise more money than the Mission needs.
  • We will never sell or rent our donor mailing list
  • We believe that our supporters want to hear from us in times of plenty, as well as in times of difficulty.
  • We pledge to act with integrity when raising funds. We will always communicate our needs honestly.

2. Timely Payments & Reporting

  • We will pay for its purchases immediately or within 30 days.
  • We will promptly send receipts for all monetary donations.
  • We will conform to the standards of the ECFA, submitting to an independent audit each year and maintaining an “open-book” policy.

3. Donor Standards

  • We believe that Christians should support their local churches first. We will never encourage believers to support Open Door Mission until they have first met their obligations to their churches.
  • We believe each gift comes from people who give sacrificially. Open Door Mission will use all gifts prayerfully and conservatively. No one will become financially wealthy as a result of his/her efforts at the mission. All designated donations will be used for the purposes they are given.

4. Open Communication
