Smart Giving

Make the Most of Your Giving

At Arkansas Community Foundation, our tagline is “Smart Giving to Improve Communities.” Since 1976, through our network of 29 local offices throughout the state, we have developed deep roots and extensive knowledge of the charitable landscape in Arkansas. Every day at the Community Foundation, we offer donors the kind of experience and guidance necessary to making smart giving decisions to improve local communities.

And we not only promote Smart Giving. . .we practice it. Though our signature Giving Tree Grants program the Community Foundation deploys its own foundation-directed dollars to meet community needs. By making grants and sharing knowledge, we support programs that work, and we partner to create new initiatives that address the gaps.
