Ways to Give

Your financial support is crucial to ARC’s future. We value every gift, regardless of size. Thank you for your donation to ARC!

ARC depends on the generosity of individuals and groups to cover over 30% of the cost of retreats. Each year hundreds of retreat guests find healing through the ARC ministry. There are many ways to support ARC through financial contributions, all of which are tax-deductible.

Recurring donations are a set amount, automatically withdrawn monthly throughout the year.

Recurring donations may also be set up through our giveMN.org account.

In-kind Donations

ARC has a need for particular items which may be new or gently used.

Please see our wishlist.
We are always in need of hard wood for our wood burning furnace.

We do not accept other donations of physical items without approval from community members. Please contact volunteer@arcretreat.org with inquiries.

You will be issued a receipt for tax-deduction if your donation is accepted by ARC.

Gifts of Stock

Securities or stocks held more than one year may be donated to ARC.

You are entitled to tax deductions for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and you pay no tax on the capital gain value of the gift shares.

A tax deduction of up to 30% of your adjusted gross income is available,
with a five-year carry-over of excess deductions. 

Giving from Your IRA

Since December 2015, individual taxpayers, older than 70.5 years may donate up to $100,000 from their individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and Roth IRAs to nonprofit organizations without having to treat withdrawals as taxable income. This is known as an IRA charitable rollover and the full amount of the donation is transferred directly to ARC.

Estate, Planned, Bequests and Legacy Giving

Planned gifts play a vital role in the future of ARC as we work to secure our long-term sustainability.

These gifts may include bequests made in a will, beneficiary designations of a life insurance policy or retirement plan, they can be made for specific dollar amounts or for a percentage of the overall value.

Gifts may be made in the form of cash, stocks, bonds, IRAs, real estate, any other personal property or through establishing a charitable trust.

The taxable portion of the estate is decreased by the amount of the donation, and thus reduces tax liability.

Please consult your accountant or financial adviser to explore your options for supporting ARC’s future.

Retirement Plans

Through contacting your retirement plan administrator, you can designate ARC Retreat Center as a beneficiary.

Often this is as easy as completing a paper or online form.

ARC will then receive the designated portion of your account after your lifetime, tax-free.

Memorial Donation

Make a gift to ARC in memory of a deceased family member, or other loved one.

This type of gift is often made in lieu of sending flowers for a memorial service, in honor of the anniversary of their passing or other special times of remembrance.

Please include the name of the individual and, if you’d like, the family’s main contact and address.

ARC will let them know you have made a donation in memory of the individual without disclosing the amount.

Tribute Donation

Honor individuals, groups or occasions through a donation to ARC in lieu of material goods.

This may be for weddings, graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, bar/bat-mitzvahs or other special occasions.

The community and guests at ARC thank you for your generous support!
