Giving Tuesday 2017

November 28th | All day! 

SAVE THE DATE! November 28th is #GivingTuesday. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving back to organizations that are making a big difference in your community.

This year, our goal is to raise $25,000 to go toward our research efforts, grant making, and our Girls of Promise & Women Empowered initiatives. For the last 20 years, we have been the only statewide foundation that focuses solely on significantly improving the academic, economic, and social well-being of women and girls in Arkansas.

Our mission is to facilitate programs and shape policies that expand and strengthen the roles of women and girls in Arkansas. To fulfill this mission, we serve as a grant-maker, a convener, and a resource on the status of women and girls.

It is our belief that improving the lives of women and girls not only advances gender equity but also improves the health and wealth of families, communities, and our state as a whole.

Your gift on Giving Tuesday will go a long way to help make a difference in the lives of women and girls in Arkansas. We need your help this giving season.
