We envision a strong philanthropic sector that collaborates to create a more prosperous Arkansas for all Arkansans.
Consistent with our mission and our values, Arkansas Impact Philanthropy affirms that:
We believe in equity.
In our equitable Arkansas, everyone, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, ability, religious affiliation, immigration status, or language is treated justly and fairly by our state’s institutions and systems.
We are committed to systemic change.
We seek to understand the historical roots of inequity, particularly caused by racism, and to address the systems that perpetuate inequity. We use our position, our power, our voices, and our resources to support the creation of more equitable systems that serve and support all Arkansans.
Arkansas Counts is a statewide, community-led initiative to ensure an accurate and representative 2020 U.S. Census. Arkansas Counts is supported by all Arkansas Impact Philanthropy partners, including Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation, Tyson Foods, and Walmart.org. With leadership from a statewide Complete Count Committee, Arkansas Counts provides training and resources to Get Out the Count.

Count Arkansas for Educational Opportunity
“Educational opportunity can be the catalyst for breaking the cycle of generational poverty,” says Ryder Buttry, Women’s Foundation of Arkansas director of strategic programs and initiatives. That’s why it’s so important for us to Get Out the Count in Arkansas during the 2020 US Census to ensure the resources are available to make educational opportunity possible.
