Dear Friend,

Help us celebrate 70 years of supporting and advocating for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities now by partnering with The Arc Eastern Connecticut for one—or all—of our FANTASTIC 2022 fundraisers.

Your business + The Arc ECT = A WINNING combination!

COMMUNITY. From evening dinner theater to a great day of golf to a road race for people of all abilities, The Arc ECT’s events underscore our deep roots in EASTERN CONNECTICUT. Let people know you’re an integral part of our COMMUNITY.

COMMITMENT. Your sponsorship shows that you’re a TRUSTED resource, committed to helping people with IDD achieve independence and inclusion—and that’s the best advertising your business can have.

CONNECTION. Studies show that loyal customers overwhelmingly choose businesses that share their values. The Arc Eastern Connecticut has been walking "In Partnership for Full Equality” with people who have IDD for  70 years. We serve close to 1,000 people and their families through supported residences, employment training and placement programs, summer camp, empowerment/enrichment programs, as well as health and fitness programs including Special Olympics.


All proceeds of The Arc’s fundraisers — 100% —

benefit people with intellectual and developmental

disabilities and their families.

Chances are,
you know someone
we support . . .
