How to Support Arkansas Baptist College


Arkansas Baptist College

ABC Band Fundraiser

Greetings to each of you from your Arkansas Baptist College family! With thankful hearts and sincere appreciation for your continuous prayers, financial contributions, and all you do to help our college, we acknowledge you with profound gratitude.

We are proud to share with you that Arkansas Baptist College’s Enrollment is up. The Enrollment is now up at least 85% and still growing for this fall semester. We are moving forward with plans to add additional programs to the college. Programs include a Certificate program for CDLs, E-Sports, an Associate Degree in Cosmetology, a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Information, and other programs based on the interest of students and the demand of the workforce.

One of the main reasons for this communication is to inform you that Arkansas Baptist College needs your support today more than ever. The College’s mission from its inception is to serve the needs of those underprivileged and less likely to succeed at institutions designed to serve the more advantaged students.

One of the areas that we are seeking your support is to reestablish a marching band. We currently have several students who are on campus and in need of musical instruments, uniforms, and a practice facility. While the College understands that this need is expensive, we have decided as we work to grow, we lean on the shoulders of our church family, community, and friends of the College to help us with this building experience. The average cost of a uniform is $684, and the cost of an instrument is $1,700 to total $2,384. Knowing this, we are asking that everyone sponsor at least two students.

As an incentive for your support, we will advertise your church, business, or organization on Buffalo Radio for thirty days.

As we move forward, we shall confidently continue praying, trusting, and believing that “He who began a great work at Arkansas Baptist College shall complete it at the end of the day.”
