1961 Legacy Society

The “1961 Legacy Society” honors the foresight and generosity of a very special group of friends of The Arc of Howard County who choose to provide for the future of The Arc through their wills, life income plans, or other estate, life insurance or retirement plans.

Founded in 1961, The Arc has supported people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families in Howard County. Today, The Arc is poised to take its place in the forefront of non-profits who serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities statewide.  It is through the generosity of those who choose to leave a legacy that The Arc of Howard County will have the resources to maintain and enhance its excellence.

By informing The Arc of your intentions we can ensure that your gift will be used as you intended, as well as allow The Arc family to have an opportunity to acknowledge and thank you for the important contribution that you are making to the health of our disability community.

For more information about The “1961 Legacy Society” and how gift planning options might work for you, please contact Dee Athey at 410-730-0638 ext. 306 or email to

Everyone deserves to live the fullest life they can. Of all the board’s achievements, that’s the one that makes me proudest.”
