The Springdale Benevolent Foundation

The Springdale Benevolent Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was founded in 2002 with the goals of providing quality family entertainment to Northwest Arkansas and creating programs to maintain the community’s link to our agricultural and rural heritage. We are here to elevate the experiences of families and businesses in Northwest Arkansas and the surrounding communities. The Board of Directors has positioned the Foundation for continued growth in the years to come. We have been very fortunate throughout the years to have the support of the entire community. Though the Benevolent Foundation was formed just 20 years ago, the Rodeo of the Ozarks has served the region for over 75 years. The Board of Directors acts as decision makers for both the Rodeo of the Ozarks and the Benevolent Foundation.
