ARKANSAS GIVES is April 6, 2017

This year, we are linking our Spring campaign to the Arkansas Gives Campaign – a one day, 12-hour event where literally tens of thousands of Arkansans show their love to 600+ local non-profits.  In 2016 alone, Arkansans gave just over $4,000,000 (yes that’s 4 million) in one day!

But wait, there’s more.  The event is coordinated by Arkansas Communities Foundation, and through their partnerships, another $500,000 of bonus and matching dollars went to participating non-profits in 2016.  The bonus and prize distributions from the Arkansas Communities Foundation is based on a formula related to the generosity of each non-profit’s donor support.

So, how can you participate?

  1. Mark your calendars now: 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 6th.  The web address for the campaign day is, and from there you can search for Family Development Center @ Catherine’s House to make sure your contribution is credited to FDC.

  2. If you would like our team to help you navigate the process on April 6th, we will be on-hand at the center to help! Just stop by anytime between 7 am and 7 pm and we will help you pick a contribution method that best suites YOU!

  3. Please tell your friends how much you appreciate the work of FDC and invite them to give on Tuesday! Even better, bring them to the center and let's celebrate together!

We will have refreshments on hand all day!
