Life Insurance:  Obtain a beneficiary designation form from your life insurance provider, and name ARC Living Memorial Fund as the beneficiary.​

​​Recurring Gift: ​Make a long-term commitment to ARC with a recurring gift.  You can set up a recurring commitment by talking to an ARC staff member.​

Bequest:  Make a gift to ARC in your will. 

​​Matched Gift: When you decide to support ARC with a monetary gift, make sure you check to see if you work for (or are retired from) a company that matches charitable gifts for employees and retirees.  A matching gift company is one that will match your gift in a specific ratio.  Matching gifts require that the donor completes a matching gift form obtained from his or her employer's Human Resources Department.  Typically, all you need is a receipt of your gift to ARC for your employer to verify before obtaining the matching gift form.  Return completed forms to your employer's Human Resources Department.  You can also contact them with any questions about the matching gift process.
EXAMPLE: State Farm will match (1:1) all gifts up to $1,500 for current employees and retirees in order to help your gift make an even greater impact!

Gifts of Equipment:  ​Please contact Director of Operations Rick Lewis or Director of Programming Molly Camper if you have an interest in donating equipment to ARC.



Build the ARC 2019This includes initiatives related to our various programs, groups, equipment, day-to-day needs, etc. Gifts to this fund support the initiative to finish the ARC parking lot and make it more accessible for seniors, the addition of a garage for storage and the ARC bus, and the addition of an outdoor activity space/patio to take the fun of ARC outdoors.​
