2019 Annual Appeal

The Arc of Essex County was founded by dreamers whose legacy always challenges us to think bigger.  With that in mind, we’ve set the bar high for new and innovative opportunities in 2020, but we need your help.

Imagine a space furnished with professional-grade crafting equipment for pottery and candle-making, a wide array of studio art supplies, and more. Here, children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities from all of The Arc’s programs and services can use this space to learn new skills, cultivate passions and talents, and enhance their worlds with expressive creativity. These opportunities would be showcased with open gallery nights and even the marketing of handcrafted pieces on an Arc of Essex County branded Etsy site.

The Arc of Essex County hopes to open this space, dubbed “Studio Arc”, in the summer of 2020. Anticipating a cost of $100,000 for specialized equipment and furnishings,
we need your help to bring this vision to life.
The Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation has issued The Arc of Essex County a series of challenges.
