Harmon Field was host to a multitude of events over its 8 decade run. So during the last football game ever to be played on it they had all Paragould High School alumni march past according to their decade. I crossed the field with the "90s" crowd and thought "This should be an endowment!" I wasn't sure how in the world to turn that into one, but in the end we established a fund for the Paragould Band Boosters, an entity that had used the field for decades. We had anyone contribute who had an affiliation with the field-band members, football players, homecoming royalty, track stars, etc. We even had an 80 for 80 for 80--80 people to contribute $80 for the 80 years of Harmon Fields' existence. Today, the endowment is fully funded. It was all possible through ARCF. There is no other outlet like it for bringing people together and for creative giving.

Arkansas Community Foundation has made possible local affiliates that magnify and spread the positive influence of ARCF to all corners of Arkansas. Our local affiliate in Cross County has been very successful in providing grant money to local non-profits because of ARCF funding and hands-on guidance.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Cross County Arkansas where over $88,000 in grants have gone to local non-profit groups and individuals and organizations have established endowments to benefit charitable concerns.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing non-profits receive grants that will enhance their work. I have also enjoyed meeting lots of people and getting to know Cross County better.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

generous, caring, and dedicated to making Cross County and Arkansas a better place to live and raise families.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really make a difference.
