Become a Member

The Arc Baltimore invites anyone who is concerned for the welfare and rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to become a member – the individuals themselves, their families and friends, employers, and other advocates in their lives. Your membership supports our advocacy work and core services for over 6,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. The Arc is successful in no small part due to the families, business partners, volunteers and others who contribute and become members. Public funding is not sufficient, we need your membership contribution to strengthen services.

Benefits of membership

  • Education & Awareness: quarterly Advocate newsletter, general and specialized e-news, and periodic member notifications and mailings
  • Belonging & Community: members of The Arc Baltimore automatically become members of The Arc Maryland and The Arc U.S.
  • Advocacy & Events: notification of policy developments and events, and opportunities to stay informed about disabilities funding and policies.

Contribute & Join

While we accept any level of contribution as membership, we ask that you consider a minimum level of $35 each year. Public funding is not sufficient. We need you.
