Our Grants

In addition to shedding light on the contributions Black Arkansans have made to American history, the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame strives to protect the future of the next generation of our state's trailblazers. The Arkansas Black Hall of Fame Foundation was established to ensure that African-American and underserved communities receive support and access to sufficient resources. We fulfill our mission by awarding grants to nonprofit organizations that assist these communities.
