Northwest Arkansas is a region with a vibrant community spirit, a place where the power of collective action is visible in every corner. Each year, this spirit is harnessed and directed toward NWA Gives, an annual event that not only showcases the region’s generosity but also strengthens the network of nonprofits striving to make a significant impact on the lives of local residents.

A Catalyst for Change

Since its inception in the spring of 2018, NWA Gives has been a lightning rod of support for the nonprofit community in Northwest Arkansas. What started as a regional day of giving with 115 nonprofits raising $208,000 in 12 hours has blossomed into a movement. Over the past seven years, more than 300 local nonprofit organizations have collectively raised over $3.8 million. These funds have been instrumental in elevating crucial community services, from homeless shelters to community literacy initiatives, and is a testament to our collective resolve to meet and address regional challenges.
