ArkansasGives raises over $2 million for nonprofits

A 1-day giving event in Arkansas helped raise millions for nonprofit statewide.

According to a news release from the Arkansas Community Foundation, the ArkansasGives program on April 2 raised $2.33 million for nonprofits.

The distribution of the funds was explained in the release:

All participating nonprofits will receive a share of a $250,000 bonus pool provided by Arkansas Community Foundation. The pool will be split among the nonprofits on a pro-rated basis; for example, if an organization raised 1 percent of the total received on April 2, that organization would receive a corresponding 1 percent of the bonus pool.

A contribution of $40,000 by First Security Bank was given as prize money for nonprofits "that raised the most dollars and received the most individual donations."

Cross County Museum & Archives in Wynne was among the winners. The organization will receive $2,000 for being third in the "Most Donations-Small Nonprofit Category."
