Holiday Donations

These are just a few of the generous donations that the Children’s Safety Center has received for Christmas for our families. We are so thankful and blessed to have great community partners and individuals that are so giving. Many of our families could not afford Christmas gifts for their children and the joy in their voices when we call them to tell them they have gifts is heartwarming. They are so thankful to each and everyone of you for your generosity. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!

Surprise Donation From SHS Class

Big Thank You to Mrs. Harris’ Springdale High School Oral Communications Class for allowing the CSC to come speak about the center and for giving us a surprise donation of almost $400!!!! The class was informed of the CSC by one of the students, Abby, who toured the CSC with her girl scout group. She then told the class about the needs of the center and they decided to sell snacks to raise money for client needs that we have. We are using this money to buy much needed Christmas present for some of our families. Thank you so much for such a wonderful and much needed donation!


Snowy Children’s Christmas Train Event

HUGE Thank You to everyone that volunteered, sponsored, and came out to enjoy the NWA Children’s Christmas Train event on Saturday in Downtown Springdale. Our volunteers were out there at 7:30 that morning making sure the event could still happen. Despite the weather, lots of NWA children and families got to ride the train with Santa and sing carols. Thanks again to JB Hunt, Arkansas Missouri Railroad, sponsors, volunteers, and families that made this event possible. We love being a part of this awesome event every year!

Wide Diversity of NPOs

A nonprofit organization (NPO) is an organization that uses surplus revenues to achieve its goals rather than distributing them as profit or dividends.

While not-for-profit organizations are permitted to generate surplus revenues, they must be retained by the organization for its self-preservation, expansion, or plans. NPOs have controlling members or a board of directors. Many have paid staff including management, while others employ unpaid volunteers and even executives who work with or without compensation (occasionally nominal). Where there is a token fee, in general, it is used to meet legal requirements for establishing a contract between the executive and the organization.

Designation as a nonprofit does not mean that the organization does not intend to make a profit, but rather that the organization has no owners and that the funds realized in the operation of the organization will not be used to benefit any owners. The extent to which an NPO can generate surplus revenues may be constrained or use of surplus revenues may be restricted.
