Pay It Forward

Donations by Program Area, Endowment or to Honor Someone

You can choose to make a donation in honor or in memory of someone to show how much you care, while making the world a better place. Start by choosing a project the honoree would love. Then, designate your gift to provide a scholarship, sponsor a seat in the next class, sponsor a seminar or program activity of interest to you, or invest in an endowment to ensure long-term sustainability of the program.

Pay it Forward

Remember your LeadAR experience? Remember how much you learned and connected with others locally, nationally, and globally? Remember others made contributions to the LeadAR program to support the efforts and sustainability of the program? Now, you are needed to pay it forward so leaders around the state can experience LeadAR and develop their leadership potential. LeadAR Photo Collage

If each LeadAR alum contributed $5 a month or $60 a year, over $25,000 would be raised to continue the LeadAR leadership development program that has impacted so many participants, communities, and initiatives around the state over the past 39 years. This is your opportunity to further embrace the mission of LeadAR and help Arkansans broaden their understanding of issues and opportunities facing our state and strengthen their ability to make a difference.
