A New Home

Located in a beautiful two-story home in the heart of one of El Dorado’s oldest neighborhoods and just a few blocks from downtown, The EAGLE Foundation Learning Center is a special and unique place for students and families.

Built in the 1950s by Curtis A. and Polly Kinard, 411 N. Murphy housed their business, KinArk Oil Company, for several years before being gifted to their son Curtis Wayne and his wife, Sarah, shortly after their marriage in 1967.   The home was a place of love and security for the Kinards, their children, grandchildren, extended family, and wonderful friends for over 50 years. 

In keeping with the legacy of giving first set by her parents-in-law, Sarah entrusted her daughters with the task of ensuring the home continued to bless others following her death.  In turn, they donated the family home to The EAGLE Foundation in December, 2018 where it will be an anchor of light in the neighborhood and community for years to come.

Changing Direction - Together

Our Story begins in December, 2011 when The EAGLE Foundation was founded and incorporated by Jennifer Wylie with the help of Tony Hoyle.  They formed a supporting board and began to meet as a committed team for the children in Union County, AR, knowing there was work to do but not knowing exactly what it was or how it should look.

What they did know was that The EAGLE Foundation would not exist to stand alone.  Its design and operational strategy would create a new future for this generation of young people by focusing on community strengths, connecting assets, and addressing problems at their core to prevent them and break their cycles.

The time since our inception has given us the opportunity to explore strategies of engagement and avenues for partnerships that can lead to a clear pathway for positive changes in Union County. Our current work is in cooperation with the El Dorado Boys and Girls Club and funded in part by SHARE Foundation.

We are excited about our work and grateful for your interest and support! Building strong children requires all of us.  Each of us at The Eagle Foundation is thankful to be doing our part alongside you.
