Magnolia groups receiving gifts through ArkansasGives, $250,000 match pool

Eight non-profit groups in Magnolia hope to become major recipients today during a 12-hour, online fundraising blitz — ArkansasGives —┬ásponsored by the Arkansas Community Foundation.

From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Arkansans are being asked to make online donations through ArkansasGives.org to one of 361 organizations. The Arkansas Community Foundation has a $250,000 matching pool. Each gift a donor makes to an organization qualifies it for additional bonus dollars from the foundation. All participating nonprofits will receive a portion of the $250,000 match pool; the more a nonprofit raises, the more of the bonus dollars it will receive.

The minimum donation amount is $25; there is no maximum amount an individual may give. Donors may designate up to 10 charities per transaction.
