The Arc of Schuyler's Annual Membership and Fund Drive is March - July 2016. This is the perfect time to renew your membership with The Arc or join us as a new member and be an advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities on the local, state, and national levels. Whether you are a person with an intellectual or developmental disability, a parent or family member of someone with a disability, a staff person, a friend in our community, or someone interested in offering support, The Arc of Schuyler welcomes you.
We cannot depend on government funding in order to provide all of the important supports we offer to families and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are not a government agency, we are a charitable organization providing valuable supports to a vulnerable population, and we depend on generous people like you. Your one-time donation is considered Annual Giving and will be invested to help us meet our greatest needs and operational expenses. These gifts are tax deductible in accordance with the law.
