In 2017, the U.S. News & World Report ranked Fayetteville, with special note to Bentonville, Rogers, and Springdale, one of the top five best places to live in the United States.

You know what else got a special call out? The NWA area’s “dozens of volunteer organizations and nonprofits”.

Nonprofits provide incredible services, resources, and support to uplift our friends and neighbors who are most vulnerable and need. They enrich our community through economic development, cultural awareness, promotion of the arts, education and health, and embody the best spirit of hope, giving and healing in each of us.

Thursday, April 5th marks the launch of the first annual NWA Gives, an event promoting an online day of giving to benefit the community – and a nonprofit (or nonprofits – you do you, boo) of your choice.

How Do I Give?

NWA Gives lasts from 8am – 8pm and participating nonprofits are listed here. Once you find and select your nonprofit(s) of choice, you’ll be led back to their online giving page to make your donation.
