Abide's mission is to revitalize the inner city, one neighborhood at a time. We provide a holistic approach that focuses on developing healthy neighborhoods by focusing on the neighbor and the neighborhood of North Omaha. For over 30 years, we've practiced the idea that presence matters. In the inner-city, the best and brightest often leave to seek prosperity outside of the neighborhoods in which they grew up. Working with our entire community, we are unleashing these leaders to revitalize the inner-city, one neighborhood at a time.

Historical CN Advisories

09/25/2020-12/01/2020: Moderate Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Moderate Concern CN Advisory for the Abide on December 1, 2020, because the issues that prompted the CN Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • The orgnaization has provided Charity Navigator with the ammended Form 990 addressing the issues raised in the Advisory.

Charity Navigator had published a Moderate Concern CN Advisory on Abide because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity:

  • Abide has historically reported fundraising expenses on their federal tax return called the Form 990. However, Abide’s most recent Form 990 for 12/2018 does not list fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities are only rarely able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We have reached out to Abide for further clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation and have thus issued this Moderate Concern CN Advisory.
