Support The Arc of Augusta
Donations and Giving
The Arc of Augusta has partnered with the Amazon Smile program. When you make your next purchase on Amazon.com, proceeds of almost any item (excluding digital items) will go to the charity of your choice. There is no cap on the amount of money that Amazon will donate, and there is absolutely no additional cost to the consumer!
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from a web browser on your computer or smartphone. We suggest adding the link as a bookmark so you can return to AmazonSmile any time you want or need to shop on Amazon. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
Yes, you can use your existing Amazon.com account on Amazon Smile. Your shopping cart, various Wish Lists, registries, and other account settings are also the same.
Advocate, Educate, Volunteer
Become a member or join our Board of Directors!
Membership in The Arc of Augusta walks hand-in-hand with leadership, with service, and with results! The Arc of Augusta is a membership-based non-profit and it is through our membership that the Board of Directors is selected and elected. If changes are made to the chapters’ bylaws, then the membership is informed and votes to approve or disapprove.
Membership also helps to sponsor an individual in attending our Day Support programs. Our policy is not to deny service to anyone regardless of their ability to pay, so we created the non-waiver sponsorship fund. Not every individual who attends our adult day support programs has the necessary funds to do so, as not everyone is fortunate enough to be a recipient of a waiver. The sponsorship funds are matched to funds provided via grants.
Membership in the Arc of Augusta comes with very few privileges, there are no special offers for joining, but there is the knowledge that your membership enables our organization to move forward on very important issues that affect the individuals we serve. Ever since 2012 and the Department of Justice Settlement Agreement in Virginia, gains have been made for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and The Arc has been at the forefront of advocating for continued changes in the Commonwealth. Progress has been made and though it seems change is slow, it is change nonetheless.
But we need to continue the work, we need to continue to grow our membership so that our collective voice grows louder, so that we are heard and when we speak as a group we get the attention of those in position to help us make the changes that are necessary. We need your voice to add to the others who have recently joined us or maintained their membership.
