Thank YOU for Supporting the Ranches!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who made a gift to the Ranches through ArkansasGives yesterday! YOU helped raise more than $13,000 to provide loving homes for our boys and girls! We are proud to serve with other Arkansans who give consistently to support the causes they serve. Thanks to the efforts of the Arkansas Community Foundation and ArkansasGives​, more than 2 million dollars was raised for more than 350 charities across the state! It was an incredible day for giving in Arkansas. Again, thank YOU for giving.

If you were unable to make a gift during ArkansasGives, you can always make a donation via our website. Just click the banner below to make a one-time or monthly gift. There are also many other ways to help listed here.

The Ranches are almost entirely funded through private donations, so every gift makes a difference in the lives of the children we serve. Thank YOU for allowing us to do that.

ArkansasGives is TODAY, and we need YOUR help!

TODAY ONLY, the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches need YOU as we participate in ArkansasGives!

For the past few weeks, we’ve been spreading the word about ArkansasGives, a one-day statewide giving event. Now, we’re asking for your help as we compete for bonus dollars and cash prizes as part of this event.


Thanks to a challenge gift by the Ross Foundation, YOU can double the impact of your gift. The Ross Foundation will match dollar for dollar up to $500 for every gift to the Ranches made during ArkansasGives. Help us meet our goal today by making a gift between 8 am and 8 pm.

The Ranches provide more than just a warm bed and three meals a day for the boys and girls we serve. We provide loving homes and second chances at experiences like going to the prom and playing team sports that help our children become healthy and responsible young men and women. Your gift through ArkansasGives will help us do just that!


  1. Make a gift to the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches through ArkansasGives.org. Remember to give TODAY between 8 am to 8 pm.
  2. Share a message on social media or by email to let your friends know why you support the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches and why they should, too.
  3. Track our progress on the leaderboards ArkansasGives.org throughout the day.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Matt Cleveland at 501-940-3440 or email matt@youthranches.com.

Thank YOU for making the Ranches possible!
