Donate Today. Make a difference in the lives of Arkansas's children forever.

Since we were founded in October 1977, our mission has been to advocate for effective public policies that we know will help children and their families have the resources and opportunities they need to lead healthy and productive lives and realize their full potential. By making an investment in our work, you will join with child advocates from around the state to make a bigger difference for Arkansas's kids.
