The Ross Foundation is located in Arkadelphia, Arkansas and honors a forty-year tradition of giving in Clark County. Founded in 1966 by Jane and Esther Ross, the Ross Foundation's Board of Trustees manages timberlands held for conservation purposes as well as administers a philanthropic grants program. The Foundation's philanthropic program benefits the people of Clark County through the revenue produced by these timberlands.

The Ross Foundation strives to maintain its charitable holdings of land and timber as exemplar forests through the use of management techniques which integrate the value of all forest resources, to allow public access to these forests for recreational uses as long as such use is not detrimental to the resource of the forest, and to generate revenue to fund its philanthropic program.
