Support the work of ARC, Inc.
Thank you to everyone for helping to make our first-ever matching gifts campaign a success! Thanks to you, we not only met the match, we exceeded it. Including both the donations made throughout the day and the initial matching pledge, we raised more than $4,000 on #GivingTuesday.

As a small organization, days like this matter so much to us. The amount we raised can pay our rent for three months; it can cover expenses related to sending each member of our staff to a vital training seminar during the year; it can cover the many additional hours we work on cases and do not get paid by courts. Your support goes so far.

For everyone who gave or spread the word - thank you! And a special thanks to our matchers for making this campaign possible!
     This year,
         give justice
Give your friends and family a gift that creates change. When you make a donation, ARC, Inc. will send a holiday card to your recipient letting them know that a gift has been made in their honor. 

You can direct your gift in the way that will be most meaningful to your recipient:

Client Assistance Fund: A donation of $40 allows us to provide crucial support for one client for a month.

Baltimore Mitigation Training Series: $50 covers the cost for one person to receive a day of intensive training in essential mitigation topics.

General Support: Designate your gift to wherever it is needed most. We are a small organization, so your gift in any amount makes a big difference!
