Smart Giving

Make the Most of Your Giving

Arkansas Community Foundation makes the giving process simple, flexible and efficient for individuals, families and corporations. Depending on your timeframe and goals, Community Foundation staff members can provide a customized giving plan to maximize your charitable investments.

How and what you give depends on what you hope to accomplish with your donation. Our giving toolkit helps your charitable dollars do more in your community.


Protect your dollars by taking advantage of our charitable financial tools. You can create a fund or endowment at the Community Foundation to help you protect, grow and direct your charitable dollars, all while receiving the maximum tax benefits for your donations.


Grow your impact. You need facts in order to make smart giving decisions. The Community Foundation also provides a statewide report that compiles updated county-by-county data about issues of interest in Arkansas.  Our development team is committed to helping you explore needs in your local community.


Invest charitable dollars using Community Foundation grantmaking tools to structure a giving option tailored to the causes you care about. Take a hands-on approach to making grants or entrust the process to our professional staff or local board
