Invest in the Past
The Archeological Research Fund (ARF) was established by the Arkansas Archeological Society to provide money not available from other sources for archeological projects in Arkansas. Money from the Research Fund can help with different aspects of archeological research, such as radiocarbon analysis of charred material for dating or identification of small seeds or bones by specialists.
Money is raised for the Archeological Research Fund through a Silent Auction and Raffle, held during the Annual Meeting each year, and through donations from members and other supporters.
Contributions to ARF are deposited in a special account, and money earned from interest is used to provide grants. A Committee of the Society receives proposals for the use of ARF funds, and awards are announced at the Annual Meeting. Contributions to the Archeological Research Fund are tax deductible as donations to a nonprofit organization.
