The Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter (NWAWS) encourages and supports outside companies, groups, and organizations to plan and/or sponsor an event to raise funds for NWAWS. This kind of activity is called a “third-party” fundraiser.

We would love for you to join our work by planning a Third-Party fundraiser!

Download the NWAWS Third-Party Event Policy and Form

Some examples of third-party fundraisers include:

  • Donation drives: You or your group collect items that we need in shelter or for the NWAWS Thrift Store.
  • Beneficiary event: You host an event (like a golf outing or car show) and donate the proceeds to NWAWS.
  • You host a competition (like a 5K or bike ride) and ask that registrants get pledges to benefit NWAWS.
  • Your business donates a portion of your sales during a specified period of time or from a specific product.
  • You host a grand opening of your local business and invite NWAWS to assist in the planning and in return, receive a portion of proceeds from the event.

Questions should be directed to Amber Lacewell, Director of Community Engagement & Education, at 479-246-0353 ext. 103 or
