Membership Campaign 2021 - Achieve with us!

Dear Friend of The Arc, 

Hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the warmer temperatures.  We want to share some items of interest with you about The Arc.  The Arc of the United States has a network of more than 140,000 members and 600+ affiliated chapters nationwide.  As a member, you have joined the largest grassroots movement to protect the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  As part of this network, you are connected to others who share your beliefs and your dedication to The Arc’s mission. Self-advocates (an individual with IDD), their family members, experts and professionals in the field and advocates and activists work together through The Arc to ensure that people with IDD have the resources to meet their needs and live self-determined lives. 

We are asking if you would renew your membership to this worthwhile cause.  As a member, you are uniting with an organization who has dedicated its time and energy to children and adults with IDD and their families.  People who deserve to have the support and services they need, want and enjoy. 
Your annual support will make our advocacy even more powerful. Your membership gives you: 

  • Access to the latest information, including newsletters; 
  • Up-to-the minute alerts about the latest on Capitol Hill so you know when to take action; 
  • Discounted registration to our annual national events such as National Convention; 
  • Access to exclusive insurance coverage rates through our partner Mercer 
    • Includes Group Term Life Insurance, Health Insurance such as major medical, Medicare supplement, life line screening, hospital income, and accidental death and dismemberment insurance. 
    • Coverage and availability may vary by state. 

We need you in order to continue our services and advocacy, and also to provide a strong voice in Harrisburg and Washington on behalf of the individuals we serve.  The more people who join as members equals more voting privileges on legislative issues affecting people with IDD.  Our members mean the world to us and we are so very thankful for your support. 

Please fill out the form on the back of this newsletter and send it back to The Arc, along with your support.  If you would include your email address that would be great! Information will be forwarded to you as soon as it becomes available.  Thank you for your continued commitment and generosity.  We are here because children and adults with IDD need us to be and rely on us.  Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
