Pocahontas, AR- The Northeast Arkansas Intermodal Authority, in association with the Arkansas Community Foundation, is facilitating a regional community forum at Black River Technical College for residents of Randolph, Lawrence and Clay Counties to explore the need for a local community foundation affiliate. The forum is an important aspect of the community engagement process and will determine the charitable needs of the region. The forum will include a presentation, question and answer session and community dialogue.
The forum will include a discussion about the history of the Arkansas Community Foundation, its work in local communities, along with area demographics and how that impacts charitable giving. Participants are encouraged to voice their opinions about community needs and how an affiliate office can build on existing efforts to promote smart local giving.
This forum is open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Participants are encouraged to register in advance by emailing Graycen@neaintermodal.com.
Arkansas Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization that promotes smart giving to improve communities. The Community Foundation offers tools to help Arkansans protect, grow and direct their charitable dollars as they learn more about community needs.
By making grants and sharing knowledge, the Community Foundation supports charitable programs that work for Arkansas and partners with others to create new initiatives that address the gaps. Since 1976, the foundation has provided more than $250 million in grants and partnered with thousands of Arkansans to help them improve our neighborhoods, our towns and our entire state.
