The Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund (ASPSF) is a private, nonprofit corporation with 501(c)3 status granted by the Internal Revenue Service. Governed by a twenty-one member board of directors representing Arkansas’ racial, economic, and geographic diversity, the ASPSF headquarters in Springdale has a four-member staff in Northwest Arkansas, and four staff members living and working in four regions of Arkansas. Currently, affiliate organizations representing every county in Arkansas administer Single Parent Scholarships to deserving single parents.
The ASPSF of Benton County recently held their 10th Annual Corporate Luncheon at the Embassy Suites in NWA. They had more than 200 in attendance and raised nearly $50,000, more than double the 2014 revenue! KMBSP is a corporate sponsor for the luncheon and holds the organization in high esteem and KMBSP attorney, Mary Schneider, has been involved with the ASPSF for almost 10 years as the former Board Chair and current board member. As a divorce attorney, Mary says she has seen the organization do wonderful things for single parents and their families!
