Education Foundations Band Together For New Coop

NWA Daily

Public education foundations in the four largest school districts in Northwest Arkansas have decided to form a new cooperative

  • Investing in the future: The Walton Family Foundation awarded a $145K grant, which the Fayetteville, Bentonville, Rogers, and Springdale Public Education Foundations will use collectively to maximize resources as the region continues to grow. 
  • Better education: The cooperative’s initiative is to “intensify investments” in regional public education so as to increase opportunity and build equity in the individual education foundations and public education as a whole.
