Western Arkansas Community Foundation

Western Arkansas Community Foundation, formerly known as Fort Smith Area Community Foundation, has recently expanded its outreach to include Crawford County. It was founded in 1988 as an affiliate of Arkansas Community Foundation and has granted more than $11 million in its 31 years of service. Our mission is to engage people, connect resources and inspire solutions to make Crawford and Sebastian counties great places to live, now and in the future.
