The Rev. Dr. Ed Matthews was a dear friend to Calico Rock. He was born and raised in Old Joe and he never forgot where he came from. He was a founding member of our board of trustees and was a champion and cheerleader for our museum until the day the Lord called him home. Ed pulled out his checkbook and wrote the first check to the foundation in 2008. His $500 check let us open our bank account and the rest is history. Help us honor Ed's contribution with a tax-deductible gift today.

Every day the Calico Rock Community Foundation is making a difference in our community.  We bring our history and art to life at the Calico Rock Museum.  We connect incarcerated fathers with their children through the Storybook Project. We preserve and renovate our historic places. We support our local small businesses. We educate our future generations. We are changing Calico Rock!  


Be a part of the change. Keep the good work going. Donate.
