ArkansasGives is TODAY and we need YOUR help!

ArkansasGives is TODAY, and we need YOUR help! Today only: the Morris Foundation is matching dollar-for-dollar every donation made to the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches through ArkansasGives up to $5,000. And the Ross Foundation will also match the first $500!

_MG_6362That means the first $500 donated actually equals $1,500! That’s a month’s worth of food for two of our houses!

And after that, every $25 = $50…or a monthly allowance for two children to learn financial responsibility. Every $150 = $300…or school supplies for six children who are succeeding in school for the first time. And every $1,000 = $2,000…or fuel to transport children to visit family members in other parts of the state.

That is HUGE when you’re raising 35 children!

But we can’t do it without:

  1. YOU
  2. making a gift through the ArkansasGives website
  3. via credit card
  4. TODAY only between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm

Together, we can grow the love and meet a HUGE need, providing homes for Arkansas boys and girls.



There’s no better time than ArkansasGives to make a gift to the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches. In fact, your gift today more than doubles because even after it’s matched, it helps the Ranches earn bonus dollars from a $400,000 bonus pool provided by the Arkansas Community Foundation. The more we raise, the more bonus dollars we receive! Not to mention, your gifts also help the Ranches compete for additional cash prizes throughout the day!

As always, your gift to the Ranches allows us to care for Arkansas boys and girls who simply need a safe, loving place to call home. For 40 years, we’ve been home to more than 1,300 deserving children. The Ranches are more than 90% funded through donations, so your gift today through ArkansasGives is the best opportunity all year for you to make the big impact on the life of a child.

For assistance making your gift today during ArkansasGives, contact Matt Cleveland at 501-940-3440 or email matt@youthranches.com. Click here to give now!
