The Betty Ann Ramsburg Endowment Fund

Where will my child live in the future when I am no longer able to provide for his/her care?

What types of experiences and activities would be helpful now towards preparing for his/her future?

What resources are available to help our family?

These are all common concerns of families, and the inspiration behind the development of The Arc's Endowment Fund. The fund is designated to provide a means for helping families plan for the future of their sons/daughters with developmental disabilities.

The money that is contributed to the Endowment is invested for The Arc by the Community Foundation of Frederick County. The investment proceeds will provide future funding for The Arc, while the actual funds in the Endowment account will remain untouched. This will allow The Arc to ensure that a greater number of families who need our assistance receive that help in a timely manner. While The Arc's Support Coordinators are able to help many families that call us, often times families and individuals who request our help are placed on Waiting Lists and the most likely people to receive immediate help are those in a crisis.

Funds from the Endowment will assist young parents to remain resilient. It will help elderly parents actualize a plan of services for their adults sons and daughters while they are still in good health and can participate in developing a plan. This program will prevent disruptive, costly, and ill-fated problems that are inevitable without proper planning. We hope you believe it is an investment worthy of your generosity.
