What We Do (OLD)

We unite community resources to address our community's greatest needs.

Our staff, volunteers, donors, and agency partners create lasting, sustainable changes that transform lives and build a thriving community for us all.


We work with a dedicated group of volunteers and Campaign Coordinators who lead their companies and organizations to raise funds to address our community's areas of greatest need.

We do the due diligence that individual donors don’t always have the time, resources, or knowledge to do. Local people volunteer their time to vet all of the nonprofits we fund in the areas of quality programming, governance, finance, and sustainability. 

We empower people to unite and solve complex problems here in Benton and Franklin Counties. Our fundraising campaign dollars are allocated to 17 local programs to support critical needs of children and their parents or caregivers.
