The Arc receives most of its donations through our donation center. These donations from individuals like you are The Arc’s primary funding source, and to fund subsidized programs and services offered to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Donation Center reaches out to over 40,000 telephone numbers each week seeking donations. Donation pick-ups are made throughout southwestern and eastern Idaho. We also have donation drop off boxes located in the Treasure Valley.  The Arc has a partnership with Savers Thrift store that provides revenue for the items we provide them.  This revenue in turn, goes back into funding all the services we offer to people with intellectual and developmental disablities.

As you do your spring-cleaning, please keep The Arc in mind! We appreciate all donations and couldn’t do what we do without the generous donations from individuals all around Idaho.

Please contact the Donation Center at 208-363-9350 or toll free at 1-866-605-9373, or schedule a pick-up online here if you have items to donate.
