To celebrate our 100 Year Anniversary, All Makes will use $100,000 to donate remodeled workspaces for a deserving nonprofit in each of our locations: Omaha, Lincoln and Kearney, Nebraska, and Des Moines, Iowa.
At All Makes, we know that nonprofits must focus their resources to fulfill their missions and so may not realize opportunities to use their workspace as a tool for attracting funds and talent.
All Makes announced the official winners on Monday, July 9 via this page and on our respective social media pages: Omaha – All Makes and All Makes Technology; All Makes – Lincoln, All Makes – Kearney and All Makes – Des Moines.
Communities were welcomed and encouraged to submit multiple nominations here. To be eligible, the nominee must have been a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the Omaha, Lincoln, Kearney or Des Moines metro areas.
A panel of local judges representing each location selected the five finalists based on:
- applications of ethical business practices to execute the nonprofit’s mission
- influence on the community
- demonstration of excellence in leadership
- need for a more efficient workspace
The 100 Year, $100,000 Office Makeover Contest reflects All Makes’ core mission of promoting good design in business. A long-time supporter of local charitable organizations, All Makes encourages nonprofits to also embrace quality design in their operations.
