Generosity is on the rise in Northwest Arkansas!
In the shadows of Old Main, a dynamic business community led by Walmart, Tyson, JB Hunt and vendors from every major supplier in the country, there is a community of non-profit organizations that are providing a variety of services designed to assist the people of our regions of the state. Surrounded by the beauty of the Ozarks it is no wonder that Northwest Arkansas is one of the best places to live in America.
On April 5, 2018, let’s join together to give from the heart to the nonprofit organizations of Northwest Arkansas. Between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., we’re challenging all Arkansans to give to the charities of their choice.
For the past 3 years, the Arkansas Community Foundation has sponsored a giving day called Arkansas Gives for non-profits all over the state of Arkansas and were very successful in helping raise much needed resources to serve the communities of Northwest Arkansas. Over the past 3 years, they helped raise over $12 million dollars. This initiative was intended to prime the pump for non-profit organizations and therefore there are no plans to continue Arkansas Gives in the future.
Many of the nonprofit organizations were sad to see Arkansas Gives end – so a group of individuals decided to organize an annual Giving Day to benefit the nonprofits here in the Northwest part of the state. We call it NWA Gives.
Who can participate? This is a fundraising event for non-profits in Northwest Arkansas. Must be a registered 501 (c)(3) organization.
When? This event will be held April 5, 2018 from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
Where? This is an online campaign and will be hosted at www.nwagives.org
How does it work? Each participating organization will be listed alphabetically on the site and will have a link back to their website to make your donation. We will be updating a leader board here at www.nwagives.org throughout the day to keep you posted as to how your favorite non-profit is faring during the event.
