What Do You Want to Accomplish in Your Community?
Arkansas Community Foundation can help. People across Arkansas have discovered that partnering with ARCF is a way to achieve their charitable goals.
In Mountain Home, friends pulled together to build a network of hiking trails in memory of David Floyd, who passed away in 2006. They established an endowment through ARCF’s Twin Lakes local office to ensure that the trail will always be maintained and will continue to promote the active lifestyle David embraced. The Friends of David’s Trail had a vision for their community; ARCF provided a way to make their vision a reality.
Here’s How Others are Partnering with ARCF
Smart philanthropy starts with education. Through our Out & About Site Visits, we’re getting out of the office and into the community to learn about local nonprofit organizations and how they’re working to solve community needs. Recently we visited Arkansas Literacy Councils, Argenta Community Development Corporation and the Witt Stephens Central Arkansas Nature Center.
We can give more when we give together. That’s the idea behind ARCF’s giving circles. Groups of individuals who share a common interest work together to build an endowment and meet regularly to decide which charitable causes to support. Across the state, giving circles are forming for women, young professionals and groups of friends.
