Giving Tuesday Success; Onto the Next Challenge!

December 4th, 2019

On Tuesday, December 3rd, The Arc of Essex County was issued a #GivingTuesday challenge - recruit 25 new Annual Appeal donors and the Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation would contribute $5,000 towards The Arc of Essex County's newest endeavor, Studio Arc.

Thanks to supporters like you, we conquered the challenge, unlocking the $5,000 grant with 53 new donors who contributed more than $4,500! All funds raised will go towards specialized equipment and furnishings for the new, creative "Studio Arc" art space opening in Summer 2020.

Building on the success of #GivingTuesday, The Goldmans have issued The Arc another challenge.  If 75% of past Annual Appeal donors increase their contribution, The Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation will donate an additional $20,000 towards Studio Arc's opening expenses!

Anticipating a cost of $100,000 for specialized equipment and furnishings, we still need your help!  Donate today so children and adults with I/DD from all of The Arc’s programs and services can learn new skills, cultivate passions and talents, and enhance their worlds with expressive creativity.

With your help, we can unlock $20,000 in challenge funds.  To make your contribution, visit, call us at (973) 535-1181 ext. 1245, or mail a check made payable to The Arc of Essex County to 123 Naylon Avenue, Livingston, NJ 07039.
