Why We’re Here

Northwest Arkansas is blessed with opportunity and prosperity. We are home to Walmart, Tyson Foods, and J.B. Hunt, some of the most influential companies in the world. Look around and you’ll see big office buildings, luxury homes, trendy restaurants, a world-class museum, regional trail systems, vibrant downtowns, and other amenities and experiences that rival the most sophisticated cities across the globe. 

Right alongside this wealth is heartbreaking poverty. Many of our neighbors are struggling with basic needs—such as food, shelter, health care, and education—and have limited access to many of the resources they need to prosper.

Endeavor seeks to narrow this gap by funding health and wellbeing, education, and community vitality opportunities across Northwest Arkansas. We look to our civic and business leaders, community organizers, and nonprofit providers for big ideas and work with them to come up with long term solutions to the region’s most urgent problems. Together, we can improve the lives of everyone who calls Northwest Arkansas home.
