Though most Community Foundation grants are designated by donors, grants to nonprofits that go through a review process include statewide and local Giving Tree grants and special grant programs administered by the Foundation.

Giving Tree Grants

Giving Tree Endowments at the local and state level make annual grants through a competitive process to support a variety of causes, based on changing community needs. Committees of local leaders in each community determine the best use of Giving Tree grant funds. Other special grant programs are administered by the Community Foundation, including Delta Endowment for Building Community and Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Foundation grants.

Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Grants

In the past, Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Foundation (ABHOF) has made annual grants through a fund at Arkansas Community Foundation to support programs addressing challenges and opportunities for families in African-American and other underserved communities. In 2020, ABHOF will award no grants. During this time, the ABHOF Board will concentrate on research and renewal, forming a new strategic plan to better serve the needs of Arkansans. Check back later in 2020 for updates on the next grant cycle.
