Giving Tuesday

 

Join The Arc for #GivingTuesday!

This year, The Arc of Lehigh and Northampton Counties is participating in Giving Tuesday on November 29, 2022! Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement dedicated to boosting charitable efforts worldwide. Join us as we come together to provide much-needed support for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

Gifts made to The Arc during the Giving Tuesday campaign will directly support our Advocacy Department in their work to provide free resources, webinar trainings, and one-to-one advocacy support to children and adults with IDD and their families in the Lehigh Valley.

You can make a difference by making a gift today or becoming a fundraiser and encouraging your friends and family to learn about The Arc and support the Advocacy Department.  

You can also make your gift via check. 

Please mail your check, payable to The Arc, 2289 Avenue A, Bethlehem, PA 18017.  Be sure to include “Giving Tuesday” on the memo line. You may also drop off your gift in person, Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

 When you support The Arc on Giving Tuesday, you give individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families the gift of being included members of our community, free to live, work, learn, and play as they choose. Thank you in advance for your support!  

 

Who benefits from my support?

For individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families, it is often immensely challenging to interpret, navigate, and stay abreast of the ever-changing and complex systems of waiver funding, special education, and available services.

How does my support help?

As the region’s only provider of free trainings, resources, and one-to-one advocacy services of this scope for people with IDD, The Arc’s Advocacy Department stands alone to fill in the critical knowledge gaps that individuals with IDD and families may experience.  As a team, they provide a consistent and ever-growing schedule of virtual webinar trainings and up-to-date resources regarding regulatory changes and legislation that affect people with disabilities. Additionally, they provide one-to-one services to assist with complex cases in special education and the transition to adulthood, among other topics.

Why does my support matter?

These critical advocacy services are not supported by any government funding. The program relies entirely on the generosity of our community of donors and friends. Your gift ensures that we can continue to provide these much-needed services to one of the Lehigh Valley’s most overlooked populations and ensure that those with IDD have the tools they need to live a full, productive, and included life.
