Top 5 Things You Need to Know About ArkansasGives 2016
/ January 13, 2016

Last year more than 350 nonprofits raised a total of $2 million in 12 hours through ArkansasGives, the Community Foundation’s online giving event. Needless to say, we were blown away by the outpouring of love and support for our state’s charities.

So, yeah, we’re bringing ArkansasGives back in 2016!

Here’s what you need to know about the big day:

  1. ArkansasGives is April 7. Put the date on your calendar and get ready to give! When you donate to your favorite charities through between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on April 7, you can help them compete for bonus dollars and prizes. It’s a great way to make your charitable dollars stretch further. 
  2. Nonprofits have to sign up by Feb. 14. Most nonprofit organizations will be eligible to participate , but they’ve got to sign up. Check here to see which organizations are already confirmed to participate. If your favorite charity isn’t on the list, send them a link to our registration form and ask them to get involved. 
  3. You can donate to 10 nonprofits in one transaction. We know there are many charities that matter to you, so we’re making it easy to support them all. When you donate online through, you can earmark gifts for up to 10 participating nonprofits in a single credit card transaction, so you don’t have to re-enter your payment information over and over. Simple!
  4. We’ll make sure you don’t forget about the big day. Sign up here to receive an email reminder on April 7. Don’t worry – we’ll only send you a message the day before, the morning of the event, and at the end of the day to let you know the results. We promise not to spam! 
  5. Big news is coming soon. Stay tuned for a big announcement later this month. We’ll be sharing details about our 2016 fundraising goals, sponsors, partners, participating nonprofits and this year’s bigger, better bonus pool of incentive dollars for participating nonprofits.
