Carroll County Community Foundation

Carroll County Community Foundation was established in 2001 by local community leaders who saw an opportunity to provide permanent sources of charitable funding for nonprofits who work in and for the people of our area.

One of 28 affiliates of Arkansas Community Foundation, Carroll County Community Foundation has provided over $1 million in grants throughout our 18 years of service. These grants support programs that respond to critical needs, such as food insecurity and medical issues, as well as programs that sustain and enrich, like the arts and education.

We encourage smart giving to improve our neighborhoods, towns and rural communities now and forever and proudly work with charitable donors to customize their own funds and endowments. We also maintain a connection with local nonprofits which helps us understand their needs and the local issues.

Contact us today to find out how your charitable donations can support, protect and invest in a better Carroll County. We will be happy to visit with you at your convenience. We have a local Executive Director and volunteer board of community leaders, a local office and the legacy of 42-plus years of support from Arkansas Community Foundation in Little Rock to back us up.

We want to know your passion for giving! Let us be your partner in philanthropy!
