About Our Foundation
The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation was established in 1997. It began with a $25,000 donation made by Mr. Jim Elrod, President of Willis-Knighton Health System, to establish the Tommy Turner Endowment Fund. Tommy Turner and his family were long-time friends of Mr. Elrod. Tommy had been a student and client with The Arc since the beginning in 1954. His parents were among the pioneer families responsible for starting The Arc Caddo-Bossier. They were very involved in human service activities to promote community involvement and programs for people with disabilities. Today, The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation has a volunteer Board of Trustees from the community.
You may invest in The Arc Caddo-Bossier by joining The Foundation Society, giving a donation, or through Planned Giving opportunities with The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation.
The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation Society
The Arc Foundation Society is a group of people who realize the value of The Arc's programs in our community and have given a gift of $1,000 or more annually to The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation.
Each year we celebrate the people, companies, and organizations that support the work of The Arc Caddo-Bossier Foundation with an Appreciation Dinner.
