Our Story

NWA Gives exists to inspire generosity to meet the needs of NWA

We launched NWA Gives in the Spring of 2018 and hosted the first NWA Gives Day of Giving on April 5th, 2018.  The first regional day of giving had 115 nonprofits participate from across Benton and Washington county. Collectively they raised $208,000 in 12 hours!

Seeing the heart for giving in NWA and the potential to inspire generosity to meet the needs in the community, they invited other strategic partners to join the team to help grow and expand NWA Gives in 2019 and beyond.  NWA Gives is a 501c3 nonprofit led by the NWA Gives Board of Directors.

One of the signature emphases of NWA Gives is providing fundraising training and resources to nonprofits in NWA.  As these nonprofits are growing in their ability to connect with financial partners in the area, they are one step closer to accomplishing the vision of meeting needs in our area.

Our vision is to see NWA become one of the most generous communities in the world!

Every April we host a giving day, check it out here!
