Phillips County Community Foundation

Established in 1991 as an affiliate of Arkansas Community Foundation, Phillips County Community Foundation works to build philanthropy throughout our county. Our board of directors and executive director work together to establish endowment funds, build assets and award grants to help meet community needs. We have given over $12.9 million in cumulative grants since we established in 1991. We are happy to serve our community and are thankful to our generous donors, and our hardworking grantees who accomplish amazing work in our community.
