Meet the Team

Since our founding in 2021, More to Give has always striven to reflect the integrity and character of Northwest Arkansas and its people. We’re very proud of the diversity of our staff and their abilities to contribute their own unique experience and skills to our success.
 
Beth Graham
Founder & President

During Christmas 2020, Beth had a desire to nurture the under-served children in the community outside of her four walls, something as simple and special as her family's Christmas Eves were. She kept thinking how much more she had to give, and More to Give was created.

Beth is a Director of Sales for a tax consulting firm that works with Architecture and Engineering companies around the country. Beth is a member of Cross Church Fayetteville, where she and her husband lead a Blended Family small group. Beth enjoys anything outdoors: playing tennis, kayaking, hiking, cheering for the Razorbacks, and spending time with her four boys.

Jessica Dunphy
Treasurer

Jessica is currently a special education teacher for Fayetteville Public Schools. She is a graduate of the University of Central Arkansas where she earned multiple degrees specializing in education.

Originally from Cabot where her family remains, Jessica boldly relocated to Fayetteville in 2014 with her daughter to develop autonomy as a single parent. Investing her daughter and herself into school and community for the past several years, she has discovered that Northwest Arkansas and its occupants have so much to offer.

Jessica has joined More to Give because she has an understanding of the challenges faced during transitions of life as well as working closely with families without the means to provide. She supports the mission of More to Give and wants to eliminate the challenges families face to leave a lasting impression in a child’s life during what is the most wonderful and magical time of the year- Christmas.

Ellen Sheppard
Secretary

Ellen Sheppard is an Advanced Practitioner (APN) who has worked in the medical field for over 25 years.

In the past, Ellen has worked with hospitals in developing cardiac surgery programs. This time allowed her to work closely with American Heart Association in championing awareness of heart disease and supporting fundraising efforts. Most recently Ellen took on a role as APN to a small rural town in Arkansas. During this time she worked closely with foster families and witnessed first-hand the needs of children in our communities.

Ellen’s practice in Bentonville, AR provides her an avenue to support charities in NWA. She is excited to be a part of MTG and work closely with the community to give a child a gift of magic on Christmas Eve.
