Together, we can.

Heart of Arkansas United Way has been improving lives and strengthening our community since 1923. Nearly 100 years later, our commitment remains, as we strategically respond to the unique challenges of our time. We’re a vital force in building a strong, equitable community where everyone can thrive. We help people invest in local solutions to make life better for our neighbors. We’re driven by a belief that people want to help each other, and an understanding that education, financial stability, and health are the cornerstones of a good life.

But we don’t do this work alone. We unite regional nonprofits to work together effectively and collectively. We leverage the commitment of our partners, the generosity of our donors, and the willingness of our volunteers to make our community stronger for everyone.

Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can live United.


How We Work

United Way believes that our community faces challenges that no one can solve alone. Our impact is based on the strength of our partnerships, both in our project work and in our grantmaking. Our Community Investment and Regional Investment Grants support organizations in the communities we serve who are having measurable impact in improving the Education, Financial Stability and Health of our neighbors. United Way grants are rigorously evaluated by local volunteers to ensure we're making the greatest difference.

United Way is also able to leverage corporate, government, and foundation funds to build our community, from short-term safety net services to long-term change for families.
