Enhancing the quality of life in our home region of Northwest Arkansas
and the Arkansas-Mississippi Delta
Rooted in a legacy of giving
We honor our roots by helping build opportunity in our home region because these are the communities where Sam and Helen Walton first found opportunity. In Northwest Arkansas, we support efforts that enable one of the nation’s best places to live to further that status by building on what has always made the region special and evolving to meet the needs of a growing population of all ages, incomes and cultures.

Our work takes us to the unique downtowns of the region where we support efforts to cultivate what makes each community unique. And it also takes us to the world stage as we work to establish the region as a global leader and top destination in education, arts and culture and recreation. We measure progress by student achievement, participation in cultural programs and the use of our trail system for recreation and transportation.

In the Arkansas-Mississippi Delta region, we support efforts that create access to educational and economic opportunity. We do this through support for Pre-K-12 schools, improved public safety, development and engagement of young people and economic development. We measure progress by new jobs, less poverty and unemployment, a safer community, participation in youth programs and improved student achievement.

By enhancing the quality of life in our Home Region of Northwest Arkansas and the Arkansas-Mississippi Delta, we ensure that these communities continue to nurture families and businesses for generations to come.
Discovering the Magic of Home
What is the essence of a thriving community – a place you’d want to call home? At the Walton Family Foundation, we believe it starts with people working alongside their neighbors to improve quality of life for all. Across Northwest Arkansas and in the Delta region of Arkansas and Mississippi, we’re proud to support those committed to building towns and cities with great schools, vibrant downtowns, diverse arts and culture, access to trails and nature and a flourishing entrepreneurial spirit.
