The Child Saving Institute Guild invites you to become a member!

Through the efforts of many impassioned Child Saving Institute Guild members, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised through the years to benefit children and families throughout the Omaha metro area. We invite you to join this committed group of volunteers!

The Child Saving Institute Guild serves as a liaison to the community and is a fun and philanthropic way to make friends and make a difference for kids! The Guild’s primary responsibilities include:

  • Enhancing agency awareness
  • Engaging in fundraising projects
  • Recruiting volunteers
  • Securing important financial support for the agency,
  • Participating in other activities as requested by the Child Saving Institute Board of Directors

The Child Saving Institute Guild organizes and volunteers for these events throughout the year:

Cabaret — CSI’s largest fundraiser of the year. The event features a wonderful dinner and great raffle prizes, followed by a hilarious comedy show. Volunteers assist with securing tables, soliciting raffle prizes, decorating the venue, and mailings.

PurseOnalities — Features an engaging keynote speaker and a silent auction of fabulous handbags and accessories. The result is great fun and great funds to support CSI’s programs for kids and families. Volunteers assemble purse packages and assist with event set-up, event check-in, silent auction check-out, and mailings. 

Touch-A-Truck — A free “friend-raiser” held in the fall and open to the public. It features trucks, buses, emergency vehicles, race cars, cranes, snowplows, and other heavy equipment. Each year more than 5,000 families attend this multi-ton extravaganza held just south of 69th & Pacific. Volunteers help with set-up and tear down, direct and assist vehicle drivers, pick up trash, hand out toys and trinkets to the kids, and supervise bounce tents. 

Substitute Santa — A critical program that ensures that CSI’s kids experience the thrill of receiving gifts during the holidays. Volunteers solicit and deliver toys and gift cards to CSI so program staff can “shop” for their client children and families. Volunteers handle inventory, organization and display.
