YOUR MEMBERSHIP MATTERS!

2017 Membership Campaign

Membership Levels

 

 

The annual 2017 Membership Campaign is being held this year throughout the month of June.

Why is YOUR membership so important to us?

Although membership in The Arc of Rensselaer County may only cost a few dollars, it plays an important role in this agency’s efforts to advocate for and support hundreds of children and adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.

  • Increased membership results in more clout and a stronger voice to influence state legislators and national policy makers.
  • Membership helps provide more individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families, access to programs and services through fundraising and advocacy efforts. v Membership helps to recruit needed volunteers. As more volunteers are attracted to our work and mission, The Arc’s leadership base for the future can develop and grow.
  • Your membership increases awareness leading to a better informed public. This is a critical step in creating society-wide acceptance of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
  • As a member, you will help The Arc fulfill the many commitments to those they support. Membership dues generate funds to get the job done locally as well as on state and national levels.
  • Membership is the basic foundation on which The Arc of Rensselaer County, our State Organization (NYSARC, Inc.) and the National Association (The Arc) were established.

YOU do make a difference in someone’s life!

Your membership has a positive impact on the quality of life of people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families. Please support us through your annual membership, and encourage a friend or a neighbor to join as well! Download the brochure and share!

Testimonials and Success Stories

In November of 2004 I broke my leg and taking care of my then 24 year old son was a huge challenge. He had multiple needs, which required me to be physically fit to manage him. My husband was working full time and couldn't take time off and my other three children were grown and out on their own. Sandy VanEck heard of my plight and organized a wonderful group of people from The Arc office and residential programs to come in and help take care of Jimmy. Sandy also arranged for grant money so people could be paid for their generosity. It was simply wonderful seeing such caring people and I made many new friends. The Arc will always have a special place in my heart.
