Northwest Arkansas has been home to Walmart since Sam Walton opened his first store in the town of Rogers. Walmart and the Walmart Foundation continue to invest in the region that has supported Walmart becoming the global company it is today.
Our giving in our Northwest Arkansas aims to enhance the quality of life for all residents of Benton and Washington counties, and our goals are steeped in the belief that when our neighbors thrive and feel a sense of belonging in our shared community, we all thrive. We are stronger and better, together.
Beyond our Northwest Arkansas programs, we encourage nonprofits in the region to explore additional tools and resources for local nonprofits through Walmart Spark Good including local grants, round up, registry and using the space in front of our stores for fundraising. Explore Spark Good here.
