Support our ARC Mission

Serving Those Who Served.

In 1987, the Army Residence Community (ARC) opened its doors to provide excellent retirement living with access to continuing health care for retired military officers. Shortly after, the ARC Foundation was established as a 501(c) (3) organization to offer residents and community philanthropic leaders funding choices to support the ARC’s core mission and programs that enhance quality of life for all residents.

For more information regarding giving options at the Army Residence Community contact our ARC Development office at 210.646.5461 or click here to email our ARC fund development team.

How Can I Give to the Army Residence Community?

The Army Residence Community is able to continuously improve the quality of life throughout our community thanks in large part to the charitable donations of our residents and community partners. If you would like to donate to non-profit serving retired military veterans in San Antonio, the ARC is an outstanding choice! Reach out today to find out the best way to support the important mission of the Army Residence Community.
