On April 7th 2016 United Way of Northwest Arkansas joined over 600 nonprofits across the state of Arkansas participating in Arkansas Gives Day. #ARGives Day is a one day fundraising event brought to us by the Arkansas Community Foundation. Nonprofits participating can be categorized by small, medium and large nonprofits based on size. United Way of Northwest Arkansas has been categorized in the large nonprofit section for the past 2 years. In 2015, we exceeded our goal and raised over $22,000. As we planned for 2016, we increased our donation goal to $25,000 and thanks to the support of our donors we surpassed this goal by just mid-afternoon.
The generosity of our donors did not stop there, by the end of the day $30,977 dollars had be raised for United Way of Northwest Arkansas. These dollars will go a long way to supporting children and families in need across Northwest Arkansas. We are so grateful to live in such a generous community. Thanks to you, United Way NWA finished the day in the top 15 out of 108 nonprofits across Arkansas in the “Large Nonprofit Category”!
Once again, we thank you for your participation in this year’s Arkansas Gives Day and are looking forward to working with you throughout the year as we work to provide a pathway out of poverty for children in Northwest Arkansas!
