On April 7, 2016, we challenged all Arkansans to make a donation to the charity of their choice in recognition of the vital work our local nonprofit organizations do to make our community better.
We have not yet confirmed plans for ArkansasGives beyond 2016. If you’d like to receive updates about what’s next with ArkansasGives, sign up for email updates below.
ArkansasGives is a project of Arkansas Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization promoting smart giving to improve communities. The Community Foundation offers tools to help Arkansans protect, grow and direct their charitable dollars as they learn more about community needs. By making grants and sharing knowledge, the Community Foundation supports charitable programs that work for Arkansas and partners to create new initiatives that address the gaps. Since 1976, the Community Foundation has provided more than $120 million in grants (up from $108 million) and partnered with thousands of Arkansans to help them improve our neighborhoods, our towns and our entire state.
