Agency Membership

The Arc’s Agency Membership Program is designed for academic institutions, government entities and other nonprofit organizations to establish a meaningful connection with the country’s leading provider of advocacy, programs and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. It offers you the opportunity to stay informed about, link to and communicate with a large segment of the I/DD community while publicly demonstrating your support for our mission.

There are different levels of agency membership with a rate structure that is discounted from our standard corporate membership rates – select the one whose benefits fit the needs of your organization the best.
