About Us


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 three-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 the front door welcoming visitors and dignitaries from all over the world.

Governor's Mansion Circle

Members of the Governor's Mansion Circle are those most invested in the preservation and enhancement of the Arkansas Governor's Mansion. Membership is obtained by making at donation to the Governor's Mansion Association of at least $1,500.
