Annual Appeal Update!

January 22nd, 2020

The Arc of Essex County is dreaming big in 2020, with our sights set on opening “Studio Arc,” a new creative art space furnished with professional-grade crafting equipment for pottery and candle-making, a wide array of studio art supplies, and more. So far, we’ve raised more than $26,500 and unlocked a $5,000 challenge grant to make this space a reality.

We are just $1,500 away from hitting our next target.  Will you make a contribution today so 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?

Have you contributed to The Arc’s Annual Appeal in the past?  When 75% of past annual appeal donors increase their contribution by any amount, we’ll unlock an additional $20,000 challenge grant thanks to the Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation!
