What’s one easy way you can make a difference for your favorite charitable causes? By making a donation at www.ArkansasGives.org TODAY between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., you can help your favorite nonprofits earn bonus dollars and prizes. That’s right – your gift goes a little further during ArkansasGives.

ArkansasGives is a 12-hour online giving event hosted by Arkansas Community Foundation. The Foundation is challenging all Arkansans to make a donation to the charity of their choice in recognition of the vital work our local nonprofits do in our communities.

Here’s how YOU can participate in ArkansasGives:

1. Go to www.ArkansasGives.org between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. TODAY and search by keyword or location for the nonprofit that you want to give to. You can use your phone, tablet or computer to make an online gift.

If you’re not sure about which nonprofits you’d like to support, you can search for organizations by county location or you can search by service category (animal welfare, health, education, etc.).

2. After you’ve selected your nonprofits, enter your donor information and use your credit card to make a donation. The minimum gift is $25 and you can donate to AS MANY nonprofits as you’d like in one transaction.

3. Spread the word! If you’re a social media user, show your support by sharing an update about ArkansasGives and how others can easily make an online gift to grow the love for our state’s nonprofits.

During ArkansasGives, more than 930 nonprofits from throughout the state can earn bonus dollars from a $400,000 bonus pool provided by the Community Foundation. For example, if a nonprofit receives one percent of the total amount given online today, it will receive one percent of the $400,000 bonus pool or $4,000 extra, with a chance for one of the additional prizes linked to most dollars and most donors by size and category. First Security Bank is contributing a total of $60,000 in prize money for the nonprofits in small, medium and large categories that raise the most dollars and receive the greatest number of individual donations. Jane Hunt Meade is providing $10,000 in prizes for most dollars in each service category.

AT&T hosts the headquarters and media partners like THV 11 in Little Rock, KAIT 8 in Jonesboro, KFSM TV 5 in Fort-Smith-Fayetteville, iHeart Media, the Arkansas Press Association, the Arkansas Broadcasters Association, and Soiree magazine help spread the word about this giving opportunity.

Thanks for helping us Grow the Love for Arkansas nonprofits!
