Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Did you know that the organization that runs the Fayetteville Mardi Gras is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit? For decades The Committee for Mardi Gras, Inc. has been donating proceeds from our fundraising to local charities! Each year we raise funds from parade registrations, sponsorships, and donations from the community and businesses to pay expenses for the parade, and what’s left is given to support one or more local charities. The charities are chosen each year by our Royalty, and a check is presented at our parade after-party. Over the years, the Committee for Mardi Gras, Inc. has contributed thousands of dollars to our favorite charities.

By choosing to become a sponsor for our event, your business/organization not only gets exposure, you also earn the gratitude of the community. Supporting the Fayetteville Mardi Gras means supporting the organizations in our area that make Northwest Arkansas shine!

Here is a list of some of the charities we have contributed to over the years (some more than once):

Humane Society
Fayetteville Animal Shelter
Friends of Fayetteville Animal Shelter
Seven Hills Homeless Shelter
Mt Sequoia Association
Peace at Home
M&N Augustine Foundation
