The Arc Baltimore Endowment

The Arc Baltimore established an endowment fund in 2004 for the purpose of creating a permanent legacy that would serve the organization in perpetuity. The Board of Directors directed that when the fund reached $1 million, the Board could begin to use earnings to either contribute to special one-time uses to benefit people receiving services, to existing programs, to establish new programs, or to relieve matters of crisis.

Since it was established, family members, donors, long-time members, and other friends of The Arc Baltimore have made bequests, established trusts, or contributed valuable stock. Others have initiated named funds to help grow the endowment. These gifts helped the endowment fund reach the $1 million threshold in 2012.

How the Endowment is Used

As a result of the endowment’s growth, in 2013, the Board approved the first distribution from earnings -- $30,000 – and that has grown every year since, (with $120,000 approved for FY23) – to support a variety of initiatives including: landscaping of Arc homes and patio/deck furniture purchases, emergency assistance to families through the Family Fund, memberships at Baltimore area attractions for outings from centers, inner harbor cruises for adults supported by The Arc, start-up for a new family support group, holiday decorations for Arc supported homes, outreach videos, and much more.

Each year, The Arc Baltimore Board of Directors reviews the growth of the endowment and the annual earnings to determine what amount may be available for use in support of The Arc mission. In this way, all contributions or estate gifts to The Arc Baltimore endowment will offer both an immediate impact and a permanent legacy for the future of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

 Legacy Society

The Arc Baltimore seeks to acknowledge those who make the ultimate demonstration of commitment to The Arc’s long-term health and viability by including the organization in their Wills, Trusts or beneficiary designations. For this purpose, a Legacy Society will list those individuals and families who have already made a bequest or other form of estate gift – or those who have pledged to do so and have made a provision in their estate plans for such a gift.

The Arc’s Endowment Fund is an investment in The Arc Baltimore’s future and all of the men, women, children, and families we will be here to support in years to come. Please consider a pledge to The Arc Baltimore and join a growing Legacy Society – for the future.
