Since we were founded in October 1977, our mission has been to advocate for effective public policies 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.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us provide lawmakers with the most timely, rigorously investigated and understandable research possible, encouraging them to consider children in every bill they author and every vote they cast.

There are many ways to contribute to our work, and any and all gifts are appreciated. Read below for different ways to support us and see what works best for you!

Become a Monthly Donor

Our victories are real and bring about great social change, but sometimes the road to victory is a longer one. As a Monthly Donor, your recurring contributions help ensure we have the funds needed to face ongoing challenges, expand our outreach, respond nimbly to the changing political landscape in Arkansas and directly advocate for the policies we know will provide better opportunities for children and families and strengthen our communities.

Make a One-Time Gift

People frequently make a one-time donation to a cause that is of personal significance to them. For many AACF donors, our efforts have played an important role in their lives or the lives of a loved one. Others simply wish to support the research, advocacy, and resources that impact Arkansas’s children and families.

We invite you to consider making a one-time gift to AACF. Whether large or small, you can rest assured that your investment in Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families is a wise one.

AACF’s Giving Circle

AACF’s Giving Circle is made up of individual supporters who pledge unrestricted gifts of at least $1,000 annually. These gifts make a huge difference in our ability to prepare for and respond to things that happen during and between legislative sessions, and give us the peace of mind that comes with knowing longer term projects may be undertaken. Giving Circle membership comes with its benefits, too.
