It’s no secret that Arkansas shines when it comes to generosity. In fact, our state ranked 7th in the nation for charitable giving in a 2012 study prepared by the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
But we also know that Arkansas faces plenty of challenges. We rank near the very bottom of states in the percent of our residents with bachelor’s degrees. In 2011 we ranked fourth in the nation for overall poverty. In 2010, Arkansas ranked eighth in the nation for adult obesity.
Sometimes these challenges can seem daunting, but when Arkansans pull together, we know that positive change is possible. If you’re looking for a simple way to get started making a difference for a local cause you care about, mark your calendar for April 2.
On April 2, Arkansas Community Foundation is hosting ArkansasGives, a 12-hour online celebration of giving created to challenge all Arkansans to make a donation to the charity of their choice on a single day. When you make a donation through www.ArkanasGives.org on April 2, you can help your favorite organizations earn bonus dollars from the Community Foundation and grand prizes sponsored by First Security Bank.
It’s one day, one easy way to give.
Let’s put Arkansas’s generosity to work. Together we can create positive change in our state. Learn more at ArkansasGives.org.
