ASPIRE ARKANSAS
A Project of Arkansas Community Foundation

At Arkansas Community Foundation, we're in the business of providing resources to make charitable giving in our state more effective. We consider Aspire Arkansas one of the most important tools in our toolkit. The report is both a yardstick to measure where our state currently stands and a compass to help you and your neighbors determine where we should go. Equipped with this tool, we hope you'll have the information you need to begin to identify the local needs you will address with your time, talent and treasure.
