thank you to everyone who participated in the
2020-2021 annual giving campaign!
The 2020-2021 Annual Giving Campaign has concluded, and we're pleased to announce that we finished the campaign with 81% participation and $81,247 in pledges and donations!
Although the campaign is officially over, fundraising will continue through the end of the school year. So if you missed the deadline or are just now visiting the website and would like to contribute, the "Donate Now" and "Promise to Give" links on the right side of this page will be active throughout the school year. Every gift matters and will help us to continue reaching for our $100,000 goal! For more information about how to give and about the Annual Giving program, scroll down this page. You will find a link to the list of donors to this year's campaign in the blue box on the right side of this page.

All the videos are posted below, watch each short video to see and hear what they have to say about their experiences at Omni. You may see some familiar faces from through the years!

About the campaign
Each fall the Omni Board of Trustees and the Administration initiate the Annual Giving Campaign (AGC), which is a fundraising initiative that helps fund the gap between tuition and actual operating expenses. Funds generated through the AGC are necessary because tuition alone does not meet all of Omni's annual operating expenses. Each year AGC donations help fund: financial aid, employee professional development, maintenance of both campuses and improvements in our classrooms.
Thank you for your support
During the last school year, the 2019-2020 Annual Giving Campaign raised over $84,000 with 90% participation from our current families and 100% participation from our Board of Trustees and employees. We are grateful for these participants, as well as the alumni families, grandparents and friends of the school who made this achievement possible.
In honor of the school's 35th Anniversary, we established the 1985 Society, which recognizes donors who give more than $1, 985 to the campaign. We thank those donors who gave generously and became founding members of the 1985 Society: Cat and Tricia Cotman, The Davies Family, The Dowd Family and Howard/Troth Family Fund, The Gutierrez Family, The McDaniel Family, the Montiel Valdiosera Family, the Shaw Family, Jared and Kiran Smith, Patrick and Cindy Curry, and DJ and Maureen Baudhuin.
We thank everyone who took the opportunity to double their donation through their employer's matching gifts program, and we thank those companies for their commitment to their communities. Every gift, every dollar makes a difference!
