Arc Associates


Make a Gift

Gifts received by the Arc of Steuben Foundation are placed in the general fund unless specifically designated for a program or need by the donor. Each year a portion of the general fund is transferred to the Endowment fund. Use of the Endowment fund is restricted by the Board of Directors.

The Foundation has a grants program that funds projects and needs that have no other means of funding. 

Examples of completed grants include: 

  • carbon monoxide detectors for all of our homes
  • defibrillators
  • uniforms for the Cafe staff
  • uniforms for the Color Guard
  • a Hoyer lift
  • special training for associates (staff)
  • Special Olympics activities

Additionally, the Foundation offers the Wish Upon an Arc Star program that grants life-changing wishes to people supported by the Arc of Steuben.
