Clark County Community Foundation was founded in 2002 as an affiliate office of Arkansas Community Foundation. We offer opportunities for nonprofits, corporations, families and individuals to protect and invest their charitable dollars in the people and the causes that they care about in Clark County. Our mission is to engage people, connect resources and inspire solutions for the betterment of all of Clark County. We do this by creating endowment funds, building assets and awarding grants to help meet the needs of the community.
