The Arvest Foundation has made a $4,000 contribution to the Cassville school district Bright Futures Program.

The primary purpose of the Arvest Foundation is to support local organizations doing outstanding work to improve the quality of life in the communities they serve.

"Arvest Bank continues to be an outstanding partner," said Richard Asbill, Cassville superintendent. "We appreciate their efforts to help our students be successful in school and our community. As a community partner, Arvest Bank understands the importance of ensuring the basic needs of students are met and we greatly appreciate that dedication and commitment to our children."

Bright Futures, established at Cassville Schools in 2011, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing community members together to focus on the success of children.

Through a grant program, Arvest Foundation helps worthwhile charitable activities in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas.
