While LARC's primary funding is generated through the State of Illinois, Department of Human Services, in order to continue to provide the highest quality of care to those we serve, we look to the generosity of our supporters.
We offer a variety of fundraising events throughout the year, we also welcome and accept donations in memory of loved ones and in honor of the accomplishments of those we care for as well as general donations in support of the work we do. LARC provides day training, employment opportunities, and residential homes to individuals with developmental disabilities. Our programs and supports enhance the lives of over 100 individuals with developmental disabilities. We hope that as you consider where to direct your charitable giving, you will think of us. Look through the list of ways you can donate to, and support the mission of LARC.
For your convenience you can also make general donations using PayPal.

Gifts in kind, also referred to as in-kind donations, is a kind of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given. Examples of in-kind gifts include goods like food, clothing, medicines, furniture, office equipment, and building materials. Click here to download and print the In-Kind Donation Form.
