As a 100% volunteer organization, we run on a very small budget. We have very little overhead (no salaries, rent or mortgage to pay) but we do need funding to keep doing the work we do.

Here are a few of our expenses:

  • Food and other supplies for our meetings
  • Printing costs
  • P.O. box fees
  • Marketing items (bags, pens, etc.) for special events
  • Affiliation fees for The Arc of the U.S. and The Arc of Virginia
