Board of Directors Nominations

The Board Development Committee of The Arc of the United States is conducting outreach to find potential nominees for the Board of Directors. We are inviting you to assist us in this process by reviewing our Board Prospectus and submitting an application.

Ways to Give

The Arc has made significant progress over our 60-year history and with your help we can do more. The Arc provides more direct supports and services to individuals and families affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities than any other disability organization in the country. Help us to:

  • Promote the rights of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities so that they have access to the supports and services they need to live in their family homes, to succeed in school and to engage in all childhood experiences.
  • Protect and strengthen the opportunities that adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities have to lead full and independent lives, free from poverty and with ready access to whatever services and supports they need.
  • Promote the respect and acceptance that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as equal members of society, deserve from the general public.

In addition to a monetary donation which can be made safely and securely online, there are more ways you can support The Arc to help make a profound impact. Learn more about donating stock, monthly giving, matching gifts, tribute gifts and car donations.
