Ways to Give


Donations to The Arc of Butte County can be offered in several forms.

1. Monetary Donation: Each and every dollar donated to The Arc goes directly back into your community. You can choose where your donation goes (like to a special project) or you can donate to our general fund. Donors like you make it possible for The Arc to expand vital programs. In fact, for as little as $400/month donated to our general fund, The Arc can add an additional Family Support Group - which benefits up to 30 local families and their loved ones. 

This impact relies on you and other kind-hearted individuals who strive to see a healthier community. So ask yourself... Could you give up a single cup of coffee per month if it meant changing a life? What about 2? 

If your answer is yes, we kindly ask that you become an ambassador of The Arc of Butte County and start changing lives today.

2. Donate Goods: The Arc accepts donations of sellable items (gently used, please!) at 2 locations. Donations are accepted at The Arc Thrift Store in Chico from Monday-Saturday from 10:00-6:00pm. Donations are accepted at The Arc Donation Center in Oroville on Thursdays from 10:00-2:00pm. For item-specific questions or to schedule a large donation pick up, please call (530)343-3666.
