The mission of the Arkansas National Guard Foundation is to provide charitable and educational support to the members of the Arkansas National Guard, veterans, and other charitable organizations that support veterans and their communities.
The Foundation remains the lead charity for the Arkansas National Guard while expanding its impact on the lives of Guard members, their dependents, and survivors and improving the overall readiness of Arkansas National Guard.
Since 1967, the Foundation and its predecessors have provided over $1.2 million in support of Guardsmen and their Families and Survivors.
The six primary charitable aims of the Foundation are:
These six areas, while broad in their scope and impact, all have one purpose in mind—providing support for Guardsmen and their families’ wellbeing. Whether it is a college scholarship for a dependent or emergency relief assistance for those struggling economically, Foundation’s aim is to support the needs of both currently serving and retired Guardsmen, their families, and their survivors.
