If you remember The Arc Baltimore in your will, you will continue to support The Arc mission for years to come. Bequests to The Arc are designated to our endowment which is overseen by the Board of Directors. Since 2012, the Board annually approves a portion of the endowment earnings to be spent on programs that directly improve the lives of the individuals supported by The Arc. This funding grows each year as the endowment grows. Your gift can keep earning within the endowment and allow you to keep giving to the people who matter.
Support The Arc Baltimore and meet your financial goals. Include The Arc Baltimore in your will or name The Arc as a beneficiary of an IRA or insurance policy.
