The Arkansas Recreation & Parks Association has established an endowment fund to solicit financial contributions for the continued growth and evolution of the organization. Revenue raised through the endowment fund will be used to enhance membership services and will support an increase in program awareness, advocacy, visibility and overall outreach of ARPA.

Why Contribute?

ARPA provides continuing education opportunities, special interest and network opportunities, a timely dissemination of knowledge, and a unified voice of those who work in the public leisure service field.

Simply stated, a strong organization is best able to respond to the issues, trends and future challenges that position Arkansas as a great place to raise a family, work, and play, while better preparing recreation & parks professionals to do their jobs.

Contribution Levels

  • ARPA Society ($1,000+)
  • ARPA Founder ($250 – $999)
  • ARPA Fellow ($50 – $249)
  • ARPA Associate ($25 – $49)

Contributions of any amount are welcome and can be billed over a period of time. Currently the ARPA board of directors is overseeing disbursement of endowment funds.
