When Your Gift Means More
What is ArkansasGives?
On April 7, 2016, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., the Arkansas Community Foundation is challenging all Arkansans to give to the charity of their choice.
During this one-day event, each donation you give through the ArkansasGives donation page will help the UACCM Foundation qualify for additional bonus dollars from Arkansas Community Foundation (ARCF). We will receive a portion of a pool of bonus dollars provided by ARCF; the more we raise, the more of the bonus dollars we receive!
More Funds on Giving Day
ARCF Bonus Dollars: Each donation of $25 or more through ArkansasGives will be matched by a portion of $250,000 in bonus funds. This means your gift will be multiplied!
Education and Training Partner Match: On top of the bonus dollars provided by ARCF, UACCM’s Education and Training Partner Koontz Electric Company has agreed to match every dollar donated on April 7 up to $3,000! This means your gift could be doubled!
How to Participate
- Visit our ArkansasGives donation page between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on April 7.
- Make your donation.
- You will receive an email receipt of your gift; please retain it for tax purposes. Unless you choose to remain anonymous, your donor information will be sent to the UACCM Foundation.
The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton awards more than $400,000 in general scholarship funds each year. The UACCM Foundation awards more than $12,000 in privately funded scholarships.
Your contribution will help UACCM to continue this level of support for students who are seeking a quality, affordable education.

Give On April 7

“I was the first person in my family to receive a college degree. I was able to fund my education through the GED Achievement Scholarship. I transferred to UALR from UACCM to complete a BBA for Management Information Systems. While at UALR I was recruited by Tyson to works as a program/business analyst. I have been with Tyson for a year and a half now and my family and I are enjoying life in Northwest Arkansas. As a widow with 3 children and another on the way, a scholarship was crucial for me to have the ability to attend UACCM. Without the help of a scholarship, the financial burden might have kept me from pursuing my dreams and having the ability to provide for my family as I do now.” – Amy Jo Wyatt
“I started my UACCM journey as a non-traditional student in 2007. I worked full time, was married, and had three children at the time. I received the 2009 Academic All Star Award Scholarship from the Arkansas Community Colleges organization. It was extremely difficult to manage at times, but I could not have completed my bachelor’s degree without that scholarship. My experience at UACCM gave me the opportunity to achieve my dream of earning a degree and making a living in a job where I change people’s lives.” – Vickie Shadell
