The stock market has been on a wild ride this year, most recently surging to near record highs. With the value of many stocks rising significantly in recent days, this may be the ideal time to support The Arc of Massachusetts with a gift of appreciated stock or mutual funds. In addition to making our mission possible, you may also realize significant tax benefits, including not paying tax on the appreciation of the stock.
I am sorry to let you know that The Arc of Massachusetts is canceling its 65th Anniversary Celebration, which was scheduled for Thursday, March 26 at the Boston Marriott Newton. The cancellation is in response to mounting concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus. A state of emergency was declared in Massachusetts on Tuesday.
The Arc of Massachusetts is pleased to announce that it has received a $10,000 Signature Grant from the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism. The funds awarded with this grant will be used toward the continued growth and expansion of The Arc’s successful healthcare training and advocacy program, Operation House Call.
