Northwest Arkansas Giving Program


As the largest global retailer, we have an opportunity and responsibility to make a difference on the issues that affect the communities we serve around the world as well as those that impact our friends, neighbors and customers in Northwest Arkansas. Building on the company’s tradition of supporting the needs of the NWA community, we have established the following strategic focus areas:

  • Access to hunger relief and healthy eating services
  • Access to health care - particularly  front-line health and dental care
  • Access to arts and recreation that improve the quality of life for the people of NWA, regardless of income

Through the Northwest Arkansas Giving Program, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are committed to creating opportunities for the citizens of Northwest Arkansas to live better.
