AARC members affected by recent wildfires in California and flooding in West Virginia may now be eligible for assistance via the AARC’s Disaster Relief Fund.

Members living in federally declared disaster areas in these parts of the country may apply for a grant of up to $500, either online or by mail using our downloadable application form. Applications will be reviewed at the AARC executive office, and will then be sent on to the president of the state society for verification and a recommendation of action.

Since 1992, the AARC Disaster Relief Fund has been used to assist members following hurricanes in Florida and Hawaii, earthquakes and fires in California, flooding in the Midwestern states, tornadoes in numerous areas of the country, and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The Disaster Fund is open for six months from the date of the disaster. 

The fund is all about AARC members helping members.

If you would like to contribute to the AARC’s Disaster Relief Fund, you can donate by sending a check made payable to the AARC at 9425 N. MacArthur Blvd., Suite 100, Irving, TX 75063. Put “Disaster Fund” in the memo section of the check. You can also donate online or call the AARC’s Customer Service Department at 972-243-2272 and tell them you want to make a donation with a credit card.
