Thank you to all who donated to RCA through Arkansas Gives. Generous donors contributed $3,650 plus Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation provided a $2,000 match and Arkansas Community Foundation provided a bonus match of $441 for a grand total of $5,896, net of credit card fees. If you missed the one-day event, you may still donate directly to RCA by mailing a check or using the PayPal button at the bottom of this home page. We appreciate your support of RCA's work!

BIG WIN!!!! Thank you to all our RCA members, board, and staff who advocated for relief from Act 60 for the past decade. Thanks to your good work, HB1263, which provides for an annual waiver from school consolidation, was signed into law by Governor Hutchinson on March 11. Thank you to our Governor and bill sponsors Rep. Bruce Cozart and Rep. Charlotte Douglas for their hard work in making it a good bill and for every member of the Arkansas Legislature who voted for it!
