Friends of the Arc Foundation Inc.

The Arc, Oneida-Lewis is Essential, and so is Your Support!

Our Story


The Foundation is governed and represented by a Board of Directors made up of community-based volunteers, including business leaders and individuals who hold The Arc and the people they support as a personal priority.

As a qualified 501(c)3 charitable organization, the Foundation secures private and corporate gifts and grants through annual giving programs, proposal submissions, major and planned gift development and special events. Gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law. We are responsible for donor recognition and stewardship, and management of donated funds to ensure fulfillment of donor intent now and in the future. A professional staff is employed to carry out the Foundation's programs and manage its administrative and financial responsibilities.

The Friends of the Arc Foundation’s role is to secure, manage and steward philanthropic support to benefit the mission and core values of The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter.
