Home Region

Investing in homegrown vision to produce world-class results

Investing in communities and living out the values that helped launch an iconic American business success story is the reason the Home Region program was developed more than five years ago. The objective is clear: to invest in programs and initiatives that enhance the quality of life for people living in Northwest Arkansas and the Arkansas and Mississippi Delta Region.

In 2014, the Home Region awarded over $40 million in grants. That same year, the foundation unveiled the 2020 Home Region Plan, which includes an anticipated investment of more than $302 million in the region.
