The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation is passionate about supporting people with disabilities to reach their full potential as productive citizens. We invite you to explore the benefits of planned giving while establishing a legacy and ensuring the future of vital programs for people with disabilities. There are many Planned Giving Options, but summarized in the attached document are a few popular options for your review. Always check with your accountant, attorney, financial advisor and/or tax advisor for additional information on how rules apply to your situation. The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation appreciates your interest and support. We would be pleased to meet with you or provide you additional information.
There are many families at Goldman School and Child Development Center that need help affording tuition for their children. Additionally, there are students in our GREAT program who need scholarships to participate.
