Would you like to learn how to express your commitment to the goals of The Arc of Fort Bend County? You could do this through a planned gift. Once you have provided for loved ones in your will, you may want to include a gift of money, stock or property to The Arc. Your gift will be a lasting tribute to your concern for the advocacy, services and programs The Arc provides, while guaranteeing our long-term future.

Did you know that annually, individuals 70.5 and older can transfer up to $100,000 as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from their traditional IRA* to a qualified charity such as The Arc of Fort Bend County?

The Arc of Fort Bend would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who opened their hearts and their wallets to ensure that The Arc continue its mission of advocating for and serving those with IDD. Because of your help and support, the 44th Annual Best In the West will gross approximately $302,000! That is money that will go right back into Fort Bend County to help improve the quality of life for our families and friends with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

From the bottom of our hearts we say, Thank You! Thank you, for all of your sponsorships, donations, ticket purchases, auction purchases and bids. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Prosperity Bank for its generous support every year and their dedication to The Arc of Fort Bend.

And as we close out the year and look forward to 2023, we want to wish you all the happiest holiday season and a very happy New Year.  


PS – Mark your calendars for November 18, 2023!
