How is L'Arche funded?
All L’Arche communities in Canada are registered as nonprofit, charitable organizations and, as such, receive between 75 and 90% of their funding from provincial government sources.
L’Arche relies upon government assistance to cover the daily cost of running its homes and programs. This support enables L’Arche to ensure the minimum standard of care to which our most vulnerable citizens are entitled. Over and above that, L’Arche communities themselves engage in various kinds of fundraising activities to cover the costs of participating in regional, national and international L’Arche events and structures.
Thus, while government assistance enables L’Arche to ensure the minimum standard of care to which our most vulnerable citizens are entitled, L’Arche itself provides the financial and other resources that enable it to do so much more than simply meet the physical needs of those who live in its homes.
