Giving Back through Our Charitable Fund

At Arcare, part of our continuous outreach to the community of individuals with disability includes using our charitable fund to provide grants to deserving recipients. Federal law allows Arcare to retain a percentage of funds from its first-party pooled trust (Trust II) upon death of beneficiaries to be used specifically for such charitable purposes.


These grants are then available to individuals and families in the community that are affected by disability, or not-for-profit organizations that serve or support volunteer programs for persons with disabilities. Requestors must follow a detailed process to apply. Applications are rated on the basis of demonstrated need as described in the application. The funding committee, generally comprised of Arcare’s executive director and board of directors, considers at minimum the following criteria:

  1. Goods and/or services requested are clearly defined and meet defined guidelines.
  2. Applicant’s situation substantiates the need for requested item or support.
  3. Requested item or support will not jeopardize individual’s benefits.
  4. Applicant’s income meets financial guidelines.
  5. Grant requested coincides with availability of charitable funds.
