In order to provide year-round outdoor and academic programs for underserved youth, we rely on contributed support from foundations, families and individuals like you. We absolutely could not empower hundreds of deserving youth each year without donations like the one you are about to make. Please consider supporting ARC on a monthly basis, as this helps us to more accurately budget and more wisely steward your resources.
After donating you will receive an email with a two-page tax deductible receipt attached. You will also receive a thank-you note in the mail from our participants and staff. Please reach out to me if you would like to get more involved.
All of our exceptional and highly motivated students participate in the program on full or partial scholarships, and 100% of your tax-deductible donation will directly support ARC’s programs in the following ways:
