The Tea Rose Foundation of Northwest Arkansas is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that accepts tax deductible contributions. The Foundation was founded in 2008 to fulfill the vision of enriching the Northwest Arkansas community through positive programming. The mission of the Foundation is to promote educational advancement, improve health awareness, promote social justice, and help alleviate poverty in the Northwest Arkansas area.
The Foundation, in partnership with Phi Alpha Omega Chapter, hosts an annual fall fundraiser, historically called Celebrity Waiter. Funds raised not only provide college scholarships for deserving high school, undergraduate, and graduate students from our community, but also support our health, education, social justice, and poverty initiatives. Since its inception, more than 300 students have been awarded scholarships valued at over $200,000. The Foundation also co-hosts a Biennial Debutante Program which includes social, cultural, and community service experiences for high school-aged girls.
