The Arc Caddo-Bossier
Foundation Society

The Arc Foundation Society is a group of people who realize the value of The Arc's programs in our community and have given a gift of $1,000 or more annually to
The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation.

Each year we celebrate the people, companies,
and organizations that support the work of
The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation with an
Appreciation Dinner.

The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation was established in 1997. It began with a $25,000 donation made by Mr. Jim Elrod, President of Willis-Knighton Health System, to establish the Tommy Turner Endowment Fund. Tommy Turner and his family were long-time friends of Mr. Elrod. Tommy Turner had been a student and client with The Arc since the beginning in 1954. His parents were among the pioneer families responsible for starting The Arc and were very involved in human service activities to promote community involvement and programs for people with developmental disabilities. Today, The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation has a volunteer Board of Trustees from the community.


The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation exists to maximize the Mission, and ensure the financial stability of The Arc Caddo-Bossier and its affiliates by:

  • generating and accepting contributions
  • creating and administering funds
  • making grants and loans that support start-up and on-going programs of The Arc Caddo-Bossier

You may invest in The Arc Caddo-Bossier by joining The Foundation Society, giving a donation, or through Planned Giving opportunities with The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation. Please contact Leann Bond for more information.
