Since 1975 the Omaha Archdiocesan Educational Foundation (OAEF) – followed by the Omaha Archdiocesan Parish Foundation (OAPF) in 1996 – has had a singular focus: to sustain our Church for future generations. In partnership with donors, account holders, parishes, schools and ministries, we work toward a common purpose of transforming lives.

We continue to be focused on the future as we move into a new era, bringing the OAEF and OAPF under a single name: Catholic Futures Foundation of Northeast Nebraska. With a renewed dedication to service and growth, our goals remain the same – sustaining Catholic schools and parishes. We will continue our efforts to be faithful stewards of all gifts that are entrusted to us and manage funds with trust and integrity. We strive to model Christ in our actions. We believe in faithfully building communities, and we are focused on stronger futures that will transform lives.

“Many of the schools and parishes wouldn’t have what they have today if it weren’t for endowments.”

James Fehringer, Catholic Futures Foundation Board of Trustees member


Our Vision

We will be seen as a deeply valued, highly respected and integral part of the northeast Nebraska community that is continually responsive to changing needs, in service to our parishes, schools, supporting ministries and closest stakeholders, bringing each of us closer to Christ while creating better futures.

Our Mission

The Catholic Futures Foundation of Northeast Nebraska, with Catholic values at the forefront, professionally manages, stewards and invites investment into our northeast Nebraska community, giving all members unique opportunities to positively impact the future of the Church and transform lives.

Our Promise

  • We will continue to be faithful stewards of all gifts and will manage assets in a professional, transparent and economical manner as we have done since 1975.

  • We will be accessible to all donors and recipients in northeast Nebraska, acknowledging that meaningful gifts and needs come in all sizes. While we are united as One Church, we honor the unique cultures of each of our parishes in rural and urban communities. We will work in partnership with donors, account holders, recipients, parishes, schools and ministries toward a common purpose of transforming lives.

  • We will provide excellent service to our donors, account holders and recipients as stewards of the gifts that have been entrusted to us. We will serve our community and its needs in keeping with the donors’ intent, our mission and the teachings of Christ.

    It all starts with a conversation. We want to learn what matters most to you and, as your partner, connect you with giving opportunities that will help you achieve your charitable objectives. Whether you are interested in giving to an existing fund or want to learn about creating your own fund, we can help guide you toward making a gift that is most meaningful to you.
