The Arkansas Community Foundation has been building philanthropy in Arkansas through its work with donors, nonprofits and communities for more than a quarter of a century. Established through the vision of the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation and the commitment of a number of community leaders throughout the state, it remains Arkansas’ only statewide community foundation.
The efforts to build philanthropic resources throughout the state have been dramatically furthered through the development of 26 Local Offices servicing 35 counties at the local level. The Foundation administers charitable funds with assets of more than $125 million.
Tom’s, the social enterprise popular for its shoes, has released a pair of shoes and a pair of shades to benefit Make It Right, a nonprofit founded by Brad Pitt in 2007 that builds affordable, green homes, buildings and communities for underserved and low-income populations.
