Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold. This isn’t just about news—it’s about recognizing the backbone of Arkansas’s economy. Every dollar you donate helps us reach our goal and keeps agriculture at the forefront of our community conversation. Act now; the stories of 19 million acres of forest and countless hardworking Arkansans depend on it.
