Dear Friend of Desert Arc,

The Board of Directors of Desert Arc is sending the enclosed Capital Campaign Case Statement to you in the hope that you will contribute to the 2014 Capital Campaign for much-needed improvements at our Palm Desert main campus. As the Case Statement describes, Desert Arc has an increasing number of clients with developmental disabilities and needs to expand and improve the buildings on our campus. We do not receive governmental funding for these improvements, so we are reliant on contributions from donors like you to provide the funds necessary to complete the needed projects.

As the Case Statement describes, major benefactors have committed $1 million to the Capital Campaign, but their contributions only provide half of our needed funds to finish and furnish the full improvements. We have embarked on this new stage to match the donor's generous contribution with a second $1 million to complete the project.

We need your help! Please read the Case Statement and click the Donate Now button below with a contribution that will help us reach our $1 million goal.

Desert Arc serves 600+ disabled clients in three locations - our main campus in Palm Desert on Country Club at Monterey, our new Recycling Center in Indio, and our large satellite facility in Yucca Valley. Our mission is to "Enhance the quality of life and create opportunities for people with disabilities." We provide vocational training and employment opportunities as well as a year-round schedule of social activities including sports, art, music and outings for our clients. We hope that you will help us to achieve our goal for our clients!

Thank you!

Board Chair
