The Arc of Onondaga Foundation was established in 2002 to ensure the financial future of Arc of Onondaga’s programs and services. Since then, our commitment has mirrored Arc of Onondaga’s steadfast support of individuals in our community with developmental disabilities.
This year, through fundraising initiatives and events such as our Annual Achievement Awards Dinner and the Dunkin’ Run Arc Race, the Foundation was able to fund $25,650 in improvements to the residences where 114 individuals live. Some increased safety and accessibility, others beautified the homes with new flower boxes, and many provided therapeutic and recreational equipment. All of the improvements made were to make life better for the individuals who are supported by Arc of Onondaga.
Arc of Onondaga strives to help people turn disability into ability and live self-directed lives. Staff members now view themselves not as caregivers, but as supporters. Earlier this year, Arc of Onondaga launched an internal “I Support...” campaign. Arc staff members put pen to paper to declare their support.
In the spirit of the “I Support...” campaign, we hope you will consider giving a gift to the Arc of Onondaga Foundation to show your support for individuals with developmental disabilities.
Thank you for your generous consideration.
President, Arc of Onondaga Foundation
