Lisa Hussman donates considerable time volunteering at The Arc. She was a former Board member and currently chairs our Awards Committee, which is responsible for selecting our award winners and putting on the Celebration of Excellence Awards. Lisa was also the presenting sponsor for the 2015 Chocolate Ball.
Not only does Lisa give generously of her time, her foundation, the Lisa Higgins-Hussman Foundation, is a major donor to The Arc of Howard County. Funding from her foundation is targeted to helping the individuals served by The Arc to have healthy and participatory lives in their communities. Her foundation has funded special projects, like the renovation of one of The Arc’s homes. In addition, her strategic giving has included matching funds to The Silver Arc Legacy, which encouraged giving to reach $1 million in our endowment, ensuring support in perpetuity for people served by The Arc.
