What is Arkansas Gives?

ArkansasGives is one day, one easy way to give. Sponsored by the Arkansas Community Foundation (ACF), ArkansasGives is a 12-hour online giving event for nonprofits. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 7, Women’s Foundation of Arkansas (WFA) will have a chance to earn bonus dollars and prizes for every gift given online through ArkansasGives.org.

Last year, ArkansasGives raised $2 million in one day for more than 350 nonprofits statewide. This year’s goal is $4 million — and you can help WFA and Arkansas Community Foundation achieve that goal! ACF has set up a $400,000 bonus pool to be divided among the participating organizations. In addition, the Women’s Foundation will compete for additional cash prizes from First Security Bank that will be awarded to the nonprofits that raise the most individual donations, and the most total dollars.

What will your contributions support?

Your contribution makes it possible for the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas to continue our vital programs for the women and girls of Arkansas.

  • Change the Story – by reducing the disparities faced by women and girls in Arkansas
  • Inspire – women and girls to follow their passions and not be afraid to fail so they can achieve extraordinary accomplishments
  • Teach – girls about STEM so we can improve the economic status of girls and women in Arkansas

How do I donate?

All donations must be made online between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. today (April 7, 2016) at ArkansasGives.org.

Arkansas Community Foundation is challenging all Arkansans to make a donation on a single day in recognition of the vital work our local nonprofits do. We hope that you will consider participating by making a gift to the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas!
