Welcome to the O’Donnell & Friends Charities homepage! O’Donnell & Friends Charities is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to the improvement of lives in the Greater Des Moines area through the spirit of giving. To date, O’Donnell & Friends Charities has coordinated donations of over $1.4 million to Des Moines area nonprofits.

Our Founders, Dan & Dee O’Donnell, dedicated their lives to Faith, Family, & Community. They made it their mission during their presence on this Earth to give to those less fortunate. When they left this world in 2012 & 2016, they left a Legacy in their wake that the O’Donnell Family strives to keep alive today.

The O’Donnell & Friends Open, established in 1994, is the largest fundraising event for the organization. This annual golf outing is held every June, and has been hosted at Toad Valley Golf Course from its inception. Please click here for more information on the Open.
