Giving Tree Grants

Most awards range from $500 to $5,000.

Giving Tree Grants support projects and programs that enhance Arkansas communities in areas within the funding priorities of the Arkansas Community Foundation. Grants are awarded to projects with the potential for statewide impact and those serving immediate local needs. Applications for Giving Tree Grants are made through ARCF’s central office in Little Rock and the foundation’s 27 local offices. Typically, grants are available for a wide variety of charitable causes, though a target need such as childhood nutrition or hunger relief may be the focus of a particular grant cycle. Applicants should check with the local office through which they apply for current funding requirements and to ensure a proposed project/program is eligible for a grant.

Application Period: Applications are due February 15 and August 15, annually.
