After #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, We Celebrate #GivingTuesday
***UPDATE*** Wednesday, December 2, 2015
On #GivingTuesday, the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches partnered with Citizens Bank of Batesville to raise funds and awareness for the Ranches’ programs. Through an email and social media campaign with help from local Batesville media, the Ranches and Citizens Bank got the word out about the bank’s $5,000 matching gift opportunity and at last count the Ranches had raised $10,195. With the bank’s matching gift, the total raised for the Ranches on #GivingTuesday amounts to $15,195!
Many thanks to the people of Batesville who dropped off donations at Citizens Bank and others across Arkansas who donated online and by phone. You all gave back in a big way to support the Ranches on #GivingTuesday! We are also grateful to Citizens Bank for offering the matching gift that encouraged many to participate and give. The end of the year is a very expensive time to raise a child, and when you raise as many boys and girls as we do at the Ranches, that cost just multiplies with the amount of children we serve. The funds raised on #GivingTuesday will go a long way to meet the Ranches’ greatest needs to provide for the 36 children who currently live at the Ranches.
The Ranches are a nonprofit 501c3 organization that is more than 90% privately funded through charitable donations. All contributions to the Ranches are tax deductible, and you can continue to donate by clicking here or by calling 870-793-6841.

After #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, we celebrate #GivingTuesday. This year’s #GivingTuesday will be on December 1, 2015. This special day proves the holidays can be about both giving and giving back.
And this year, Citizens Bank of Batesville is giving back in a big way! For every dollar you donate to the Ranches, Citizens Bank will match your gift up to $5,000! You can make your gift go twice as far and help the Ranches receive those matching dollars by making an online donation on #GivingTuesday or by dropping your gift by at any Citizens Bank location.
At the Ranches we serve boys and girls who need a place to call home. Some have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Some have never experienced the joy of Christmas. Some have never lived in a house with people who care not only for them – but about them as well. Please consider making a gift to the Ranches this #GivingTuesday, and give a child the gift of joy.
Here are some ways YOU can the Ranches receive the entire $5,000 matching gift from Citizens Bank on #GivingTuesday:
- Make an online donation or drop your donation by any Citizens Bank location.
- Help us get the word out about Citizens Bank’s $5,000 matching gift! Use the buttons below to share this email with a friend.

Many thanks to Citizens Bank for providing the matching gift to encourage giving in support of the Ranches on #GivingTuesday!
