Arc of Washington Trust Fund
Learn about The Arc's financial support programs related to developmental disability.
The Arc of Washington Trust Fund was established in 1950 to provide funds for research into intellectual and other developmental disabilities. The Trust Fund is administered by a Board of Administrative Trustees. The purpose of the Arc Trust is to promote research on the causes, prevention, and treatment of intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their personal, social, and legal consequences. The Trust Fund also provides student stipends with the hope that this will allow colleges and universities to attract and retain students interested in working in the field as researchers, teachers or practitioners.
