Help us earn bonus dollars and cash prizes!

River Valley United Way needs your help!
On Thursday, April 7, we’re participating in ArkansasGives, a one-day online giving event. When you make a donation to River Valley United Way on April 7, you can help us qualify for bonus dollars and cash prizes that will make your donation stretch farther.
What is ArkansasGives?
ArkansasGives is one day, one easy way to give. Between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Arkansans can go to to make a donation to the charities of their choice. During this one-day event, each donation you give will help your favorite nonprofit organizations qualify for additional bonus dollars from Arkansas Community Foundation. All participating nonprofits will receive a portion of a bonus pool; the more a nonprofit raises in proportion to the other participating groups, the larger the share of bonus dollars it will receive.
Will you help us?
Your donation will enable us to provide free books to preschool children in the River Valley through Dolly Parton Imagination Library.  With a gift of $25 or more, you will be providing one free age appropriate book per month for a child from birth to 5 years old.  Currently, more than 1,000 children have enrolled in the program in its first two years in Pope County.  River Valley United Way has set as a goal to raise $10,000 through Arkansas Gives, which will allow us to expand the program to Johnson and Yell Counties as well as continuing to expand the program in Pope County.
How to donate
Put giving on your calendar for April 7, 2016. On that day, visit to make a donation to River Valley United Way between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.  ArkansasGives requires gifts to be made via credit card (including American Express, Visa, Discover and MasterCard and debit cards that bear the Visa or MasterCard symbol). The minimum gift is $25.
