Arkansas Governor's Mansion Association
The Arkansas Governor's Mansion Association is a 501c3 non-profit organization that raises funds for the restoration and preservation of the Arkansas Governor's Mansion.
The association is operated by a group of involved citizens from across the state who are nominated and voted on by the Association to serve a two-year term. It is an independent organization that relies on the contributions of the general public to address the day-to-day needs of the Mansion.
The Arkansas Governor's Mansion has long been more than just a home to our state's leaders. It is also our state's front door, welcoming visitors and dignitaries from all over the world.
