Heather Larkin, who has a law degree and is a CPA, has been on the foundation staff since 1998. Under her leadership, the foundation has changed its mission statement to "engaging people, connecting resources, inspiring solutions to build community." Arkansas Community Foundation, the state's only statewide community foundation, has $106 million in assets.

The foundation, with 27 offices in the state, helps individual Arkansans — as well as families, corporations and other nonprofits — ensure their charitable donations make a lasting difference by connecting donors with causes.
