AEAF Donation



AEAF, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, is driving Arkansas’s entrepreneurial spirit from the fifth grade through graduate school through its annual Youth Entrepreneur Showcase (Y.E.S.) and Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup business plan competitions. Students, teachers, faculty members, and mentors receive cash prizes, trophies, and certificates rewarding them for completing the rigorous business planning processes required of the competitions. More than 11,000 Arkansas students have generated nearly 3,000 business plans since the first competition in 2001.

The generosity of individuals and businesses who support Y.E.S. and the Governor’s Cup make it possible for teams to compete with no entry fees or other costs.

Your donation to AEAF allows Arkansas educators to continue to have an impact on the state’s economic development by providing students the opportunity to gain real-world knowledge and experience in entrepreneurship.
