Donate Here April 6

Your gift to Catholic Charities of Arkansas goes further when you give through the Arkansas Gives campaign. Donate via credit card on ArkansasGives.org from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and help us earn bonus dollars and additional cash prizes.

Arkansas Gives is an annual fundraising campaign that takes place over a 12 hour period that allows member nonprofits to receive online donations through arkansasgives.org. The project is sponsored by the Arkansas Community Foundation.

Though gifts cannot be made until 8 a.m. April 6, donors can prepare before that day. They can text ARGIVES to 24587 to get a text reminder to give April 6 and sign up for e-mail updates at ArkansasGives.org. The following Q&A is available for donors seeking to participate in the Arkansas Gives Campaign.

How do I make a donation?

On April 6, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., go to arkansasgives.org and make a donation by credit card. Be sure to designate your donation to Catholic Charities of Arkansas. All donations made through Arkansas Gives are tax deductible.

What will Catholic Charities do with the donations?

The simple answer: We will fight poverty in our state through our existing programs. We will help fund adoptions so that babies will be born and not aborted. We will help fund our parish social ministry and social action programs to assist families in financial crisis, those who are hungry, with substance abuse or mental health challenges or are in prison. We will help find health and dental care for those without insurance. And through our immigration offices we will welcome the stranger, find protection for those caught in human trafficking, and help qualified immigrants become new Americans.

What else can I do to help?

By participating and generating donations, Catholic Charities of Arkansas has the opportunity to compete for bonus donations from a fund maintained by the Arkansas Community Foundation. Please help us by encouraging your fellow parishioners, classmates, friends and family to donate to this campaign. Share this page on Facebook or download and print out the flyer to spread the word.
