Co-Founder of CSF of Omaha Remembered

CSF of Omaha Co-Founder and owner of Performance Automotive Group Tal Anderson is remembered in the current issue of Automotive News.

In the article, former CSF of Omaha executive director Judy Tamisiea recalls Tal Anderson’s tireless efforts to fundraise for scholarships and also the joy he took in meeting the children who benefited.

“Tal had an almost effortless way about raising money and making people feel good about giving,” said Judy Tamisiea, recently retired executive director of the Children’s Scholarship Fund of Omaha. “He would call me three times a week and say: ‘What can I do?’ and I would say ‘Tal, don’t you have enough to do running all those car dealerships?’ He was an amazing volunteer.”

More than a decade after its inception, CSF of Omaha has put more than 18,000 children through private elementary school, raising more than $17 million along the way. This year, the group is serving more than 2,000 children.

Anderson, who passed away in 2009, was also a member of the national Children’s Scholarship Fund board of directors.
