EDUCATION

STRATEGIES

Anyone who has ever worked to improve education understands that it is a cradle-to-career responsibility. Education starts at birth, and children learn wherever they are. We are focused on four areas, with strategies under each area to improve education.

PARTNERS

We partner with 21 nonprofits to support 24 programs that work in the area of education. Each of these partners works in the areas of school readiness, early grade reading proficiency, out of school opportunities, or high school graduation.

FILL THE BUS

Fill the Bus is an initiative that helps to create a pathway out of poverty for children in Northwest Arkansas. This program supports children in our community by helping them start school with confidence and gives them the literal tools they need to succeed.

IMAGINATION LIBRARY

The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is an initiative that mails one book a month,  for free, to children up to age five.
