Traditionally, this season is a time when many determine their philanthropic contributions for the year or budget for the next. The Arkansas Giving Guide was established in hopes of making those donation decisions a little easier.

As you scroll down, you will find profiles of more than 45 nonprofits. Each group shares key information explaining who makes up the organization and what it needs from you for continued success.

Mission & Impact: Review this information so you fully understand the work the nonprofit does and the impact it makes on the communities it serves.

Fundraisers & Events: Mark your calendars and go support the organization at one of its upcoming events. This is a great way to interact with a nonprofit you aren’t familiar with or support one you do have a relationship with.

Volunteer Opportunities: We hope that if you have time to give back to your community, you’ll scour this guide to find groups who need people like you.

Board of Directors: These individuals are giving their time, energy and often financial support to their nonprofits. Recognize a board member? Thank them for the work they do, and ask them for personalized insight on how you can get involved.

Giving Opportunities: This is the heart of the guide. Every nonprofit has different needs, and we’ve highlighted the current needs of each one. Find an organization you align with, then choose from its list of giving opportunities to determine how you, your family or your company can help that nonprofit succeed.

Thanks for spending time getting to know these amazing organizations and for finding ways you can support them. Big thanks to our publication sponsors First Financial Bank and Wright Lindsey Jennings for their financial support, which allows the nonprofits in this publication to purchase profiles at rates more than half of our regular rates.

Happy reading. Happy giving.
