Benton County Relief Fund

A partnership for Benton County cities and citizens

Our Response

On Sunday, May 26, Benton County and several of its communities–including Bella Vista, Decatur, Little Flock, Bentonville, and Rogers–were devastated by some of the strongest storms and tornadoes to ever hit Northwest Arkansas.

The Benton County Relief Fund will provide short-term financial assistance to households impacted by the storm, as well as customized resource plans that will connect them to as many resources as possible to ensure that any needs they have are addressed as quickly as possible. The Fund will also support local service providers in their relief efforts for Benton County and its communities.


In the days following the storm, there have been many calls by the community to create a way for residents to donate to the ongoing relief efforts. In response, the Benton County Relief Fund has been created to provide a central and local resource for those that want to contribute. 



The Fund will be administered by Excellerate Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Excellerate will cover all administrative costs for the program, meaning that 100% of all donated funds will assist households in need due to the May 26th storms and the nonprofit providers who are helping them.


Distribution of funds to households is expected to begin the week of June 3. Families in need should go to to start the process. Community Liaisons who speak Spanish and Marshallese are available.

Distribution of funds to nonprofit service providers is expected to start shortly thereafter, with more details to be announced in the coming days.

We are grateful for your generosity and your willingness to help keep the people in our community safe, secure, and stable in the challenging days and weeks to come.
