MRMC FOUNDATION ASKS MAGNOLIA TO GIVE ONLINE THROUGH ARKANSASGIVES.ORG ON APRIL 2
Magnolia, Ark. (Mar. 2, 2015) – Columbia County givers will have an opportunity to stretch their charitable dollars by making online gifts to the MRMC Foundation through ArkansasGives.org from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 2.
“Your online donation April 2 will help the MRMC Foundation earn bonus dollars from a $250,000 bonus pool provided by Arkansas Community Foundation,” said Julia Whitehead, Foundation Executive Director. “It’s one day, one easy way to give.”
On April 2 the public will be able to give online from smartphones, tablets or personal computers by going to ArkansasGives.org, choosing the MRMC Foundation and making a credit card donation. In addition to the value of their gift, ArkansasGives donors will help the MRMC Foundation receive a portion of the bonus dollars and help them compete for additional cash prizes that will be awarded to the organizations that raise the most individual donations and most total dollars in several categories.
“We’re hoping to get donors to mark their calendars now to participate in this first-time statewide ArkansasGives day,” said Whitehead. “The statewide goal is to raise $1 million for Arkansas causes in just one day.”
ArkansasGives is presented by Arkansas Community Foundation in partnership with Arkansas Nonprofit Alliance. Partners include AT&T Arkansas, THV 11 in Little Rock, News 5 in Fort Smith, KAIT 8 in Jonesboro, the Arkansas Press Association, AY Magazine, KUAR FM 89 and iHeartMedia.
