Giving Tree Grants

Giving Tree Endowments at the local and state level make annual grants through a competitive process to support a variety of causes, based on changing community needs. Committees of local leaders in each community determine the best use of Giving Tree grant funds. Other special grant programs are administered by the Community Foundation, including Delta Endowment for Building Community and Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Foundation grants.
