ArkansasGives is a statewide day of giving that allows Arkansans to show their support to their favorite
non-profits by donating online. AR Kids Read raised just over $5,000 last year, and in response to that
generosity we increased our goal and issued a challenge.
The goal for our ArkansasGives campaign was $10,000 where 50% of each donation would supply
books to low-income students and their families. With the help of Fun Wash Coin Laundry, ACE Glass,
Legacy Termite and Pest Control, and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, we were able to issue a
challenge to garner even more support through ArkansasGives.
Because of the generosity of our supporters, we raised over $15,000! We are pleased to be part of the
overall success of ArkansasGives which raised over $4 million for non-profits throughout the state.
We are overwhelmed by the support we received through ArkansasGives. A big thank you goes out to
all of those who donated. We will now be able to get thousands of books in the hands of low income
students and their families. What a difference you have made in the lives of struggling readers!
