YOU for your


On April 6, the EAST Initiative joined nonprofits throughout Arkansas in participating in ArkansasGives. This annual event invites donors to support local nonprofit organizations with the promise of bonus and matching funds provided by the Arkansas Community Foundation.


to all our donors for your generous support

Thanks to the generous giving of many individuals, the EAST Initiative received nearly $4,000 in donations during the course of the day. This money will be augmented by matching funds and exclusively used to offer technology grants for EAST schools, such as Upgrade grants. Through their generous giving, EAST’s supporters are directly helping to provide more opportunities for more students, who will in turn use technology to make the communities they live in better places to be.

Remember, just because ArkansasGives has concluded doesn’t mean you can’t continue to help.
