Arkansas Nonprofits Obtain Needed Funds in 2013

In December, Little Rock-based newspaper Arkansas Times released its list of high-value grants received by Arkansas non-profits from Arkansas foundations for 2013. Numerous nonprofits that were able both to identify the need for funds and to demonstrate the ability to successfully utilize funds received, in many instances, six, seven and even eight-figure grants from such foundations as Walton Family Foundation, Walton Charitable Support Foundation, The Windgate Charitable Trust, The Care Foundation of Springdale, The Endeavor Foundation, The Schmeiding Foundation and The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. Recipients included:

• The Arkansas Community Foundation, $21.4 million
• Food Bank of Northwest Arkansas, $7.1 million
• Jones Center for Families, $500,000
• Teach for America-Arkansas, $1.9 million 
• Nature Conservancy of Arkansas, $500,000
• Arkansas Children's Hospital, $400,000

In all, Arkansas foundations contributed over $200 million in grants to nonprofits throughout Arkansas in 2013.
