Meeting our clients’ needs is always a challenge for us financially. Although we receive state funding to provide services, this funding often falls behind the rising costs of care – meeting only about 75% of the actual funds needed to bring quality programming and supports to our clients.
For this reason, donations are extremely impactful, making it possible for LARC to continue to promote job training and employment, daily life skills enrichment, senior care, 24-hour residential services, and special recreation to more than 100 adults with special needs each day.
The following are ways that you can donate to LARC:
Using our secure payment processing partner, Network for Good, you can safely use your credit card to make a one-time donation or a recurring donation to LARC. You may also designate your gift in Honorarium or Memoriam. Click here to make your donation now.

These may include securities such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds, retirement plan distributions, life insurance policies, real estate, and other appreciated investments. Each may have different tax advantages to the donor, and all make a positive impact on individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities receiving services from LARC.
