When you support The Arc of Somerset County, you support Diana and our entire community. Will you help?
November 28, 2023
Dear Friends and Families of The Arc of Somerset County,
When was the last time you sang in public? Do you remember your first dance? Your first yoga class? Were you excited, supported?
Belting out a ‘70s favorite in front of a crowd of nearly 100 friends and neighbors resulted in weeks of hallway buzz with “Did you see Diana?” Formerly choosy about when and to whom she would speak, Diana has participated in The Arc of Somerset’s music and movement classes for years. Diana now asks many, “Did you see me at the show? Did you hear me sing?”
Some of our favorite success stories begin with shy meetings, continue with a brave walk to the class, the practice space, the stage, and end with pride. These are the moments we strive to create.
At the Arc of Somerset County, supported arts and recreation programming that prioritizes physical activity and expression at all levels, is one of the most popular opportunities we provide. It means more than a pastime. It means access to new allies in community teachers and audiences, new experiences shared with friends, newly uncovered skills, aspirations, and louder voices.
We have set a goal of $20,000 to fund two full years of engagement for nearly 150 participants accessing over 100 hours of professional instruction each year.
Will you make a gift today?
· Your $100 gift will provide one art or music therapy class
· Your $500 gift will provide seven yoga classes
· Your $1,000 gift will provide ten dance classes
· Your $5,000 gift will provide 50 group music and movement classes

What is a DAF?
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individual, families and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock and in some case, certain liquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
