Darby's Warrior Support Asks You To Give Online Through ArkansasGives.org On April 7th
Supporters will have an opportunity to stretch their charitable dollars by making online gifts to Darby's Warrior Support through ArkansasGives.org from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 7.
Last year ArkansasGives raised $2 million online in one day for more than 350 nonprofits statewide. This year's goal is $4 million. "Your online donation April 7 will help Darby's Warrior Support earn bonus dollars from a $400,000 bonus pool provided by Arkansas Community Foundation," said ArkansasGives spokesperson. "It's one day, one easy way to give."
On April 7 the public will be able to give online from smartphones, tablets or personal computers by going to ArkansasGives.org, choosing Darby's Warrior Support and making a credit card donation. In addition to the value of their gift, ArkansasGives donors will help Darby's Warrior Support receive a portion of the bonus dollars and help them compete for additional cash prizes from First Security Bank that will be awarded to the organizations that raise the most individual donations and most total dollars.
"We're hoping to get donors to mark their calendars now to participate in this first-time statewide ArkansasGives day," said ArkansasGives spokesperson. "They can also text ARGIVES to 24587 to receive a reminder text to give on April 7."
