Your 'Legacy of Love' to individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities can be greatly served by naming the Schoharie County ARC as beneficiary of memorial contribution, honorariums, and planned giving. The mission of the Schoharie County ARC Foundation is to ensure that our commitment to individuals with developmental disabilities is sustained through long-term financial support. With increasingly diminishing government funding, it is necessary for the ARC to seek private donations to maintain and enhance its high level of services which enrich the quality of life of the people we serve.
Your contribution to the Schoharie County ARC Foundation can make a meaningful difference in the lives of the people we serve and your legacy will live on forever by assisting us to provide needed services and supports for a lifetime of care!

Family members and other friends make donations through cash gifts, pledges over a period of time, payroll deductions through United Way and State Employees Federated Appeal (SEFA), and regularly scheduled payments through planned gifts. They also make donations of stock and other property. Even people who are not in a position to write a check still contribute. In fact, these are some of the most important gifts that are made. They are gifts made in exchange for the payment of a lifetime income. They are bequests that designate the Schoharie County Chapter NYSARC as a partial beneficiary for a retirement plan or insurance policy.
