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 mission of The Ross Foundation is to benefit primarily the citizens of Clark County by maintaining its charitable holdings of land and timber as healthy and productive forests and providing revenue to fund its philanthropic grants program.
