Other Ways to Give
Recurring Donations/Monthly Giving
With all the ways to give one might ask “How can my donation make the most impact or help The AWC every day?” Monthly giving may be your answer! Consistent monthly giving allows The AWC to understand what donations will be coming in and plan for the future. Now monthly giving is easier than ever, you can donate online and select the reoccurring payment option. If online giving is not your preference, we still gladly accept donations via mail to our primary office location at 5312 West 9th Street Drive, Suite 150, Greeley CO 80634 or better yet, you are always welcome to come into the office with your donation and pay our staff a visit.
Benefits of Recurring Donations:
- Saves time for both donor and nonprofit because it makes long-term donating easy and automatic
- Gives you, as a donor, a way to support The AWC in affordable increments. This is especially appealing in a strained economy.
- Provides The AWC with reliable, predictable donor income.
Whatever donation method you choose, we are grateful for The AWC being your charity of choice in support people with I/DD to live inclusive, self-determined lives.

Goodsearch is a search engine powered by Yahoo and like any other search engine it helps you navigate the internet, but the difference is this search engine gives back. The site allows the user to select a charity, such as the Arc of Weld County, and then donates approximately 1 penny for every search. Now that may seem like an awfully small donation but the more you search, the more you earn for the Arc of Weld County! Combined with millions of others in the Goodsearch movement, your searches can make a real impact!
Goodsearch and Goodshop might look a bit familiar; these two different methods of fundraising work together for a bigger impact for the charity of your choice. So, if you have selected the Arc of Weld County for one, it will be already selected to the other.
In Memorium of Your Loved Ones
At the terrible time of the loss of a loved one, families and friends frequently search for ways to provide their sympathies to those left behind, such as flowers or small gifts. Unfortunately, flowers don’t last, and trinkets frequently get lost or broken. How can one make a lasting impact in honor of a loved one’s memory? In lieu of flowers or gifts, why not consider donating to The AWC? Such donations will make a lasting impact on the people and community your loved one once cherished. Although the sorrow may linger, the positivity of giving back even in passing will be everlasting.
The AWC offers a variety of events and programs throughout the year, some events may be once a year, others may be reoccurring, all are worthwhile efforts to support people with I/DD in their communities. A big way to give would be to sponsor such an event!

The AWC can customize any event sponsorship opportunity to meet your needs, including partial event series sponsorships or co-sponsorship opportunities. If you are representing a business, this may be a great chance for some community exposure showing your commitment to people with I/DD and your support of The AWC, as your logo would be included in all our related marketing.

A FUNraiser is a simple, no pressure opportunity for anyone to support their favorite charity! From a bake sale, to a garage sale, or challenges during sporting events the opportunities to engage in a FUNraiser truly are endless. The funds raised are donated to the charity of choice by the individual, and we’d recommend The AWC. Regardless of the FUNraising mechanism, the most important thing is to have fun while letting other know what you are truly passionate about.
