LITTLE ROCK – For a 12-hour period on April 6, a few minutes of your time can make a lifetime of difference through the Arkansas 4-H Foundation.

The Arkansas 4-H Foundation will be part of Arkansas Gives, a 12-hour giving event – from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 6 -- for registered Arkansas nonprofit organizations.

“The April 6 event is a terrific opportunity for us to show our support for Arkansas’ 4-H Youth Development, which has changed the lives of thousands of young people in more than a century,” said Ewell Welch, executive director of the Arkansas 4-H Foundation.

“Our goal for this 12-hour period is $1,500. It may seem small to some, but it even modest amounts can make an enormous difference,” he said. “And this year will be the final Arkansas Gives event. We hope our supporters will enable Arkansas Gives to go out with a bang while helping the 4-H Foundation.”

The minimum donation during Arkansas Gives is $25 and may be made online with Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

Last year, 600 nonprofits took part in Arkansas Gives with $1.98 million raised.

The Arkansas 4-H Foundation owns and operates the C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center, a multiple award winning conference center for Arkansas youth and businesses.
