#GivingTuesday 2019
12/04/2019

***Post #GIVINGTUESDAY UPDATE***

MANY THANKS! to everyone who made a gift to the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches on #GivingTuesday.

With your help, along with our partners at Citizens Bank and White River Now matching and encouraging contributions, the Ranch had a record-breaking day of giving, raising almost $49,288 to support our mission!

As an organization that is more than 90% privately funded, this is a HUGE blessing, and we are truly grateful for your help providing homes for some of Arkansas’s most at-risk boys and girls.

If you missed Giving Tuesday, there is still time to make a difference with a gift before the year ends!

In 2019, the Ranch has been home to nearly 60 children. Some have been abused and neglected. Others have come from families in crisis. All of them simply needed a safe, loving home and have found that here at the Ranch.

Your gift on Giving Tuesday and every day truly makes a difference. You, our compassionate friends, are changing the trajectory of these young lives, many who come from situations that seemed hopeless. At the Ranch, they have found hope and healing.

Your year-end contribution will help us continue this important work.  Click here to make a life-changing gift today!

If you have questions about the Ranch’s greatest needs or would like assistance with your gift, contact Matthew Cleveland at 501-940-3440 or matt@youthranches.com.


After Thanksgiving, #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, we celebrate #GivingTuesday! This special day shows that holidays can be about both giving and giving back.
