Shock for The Arc of Loudoun

Give the gift that provides a lifetime of opportunities to people with disabilities and their families!


Donate to The Arc of Loudoun this Shocktober 2022 Season!

If you can't come to our Shocktober Haunty Party and Concert this year, we invite you to consider making a gift of support to help The Arc of Loudoun continue to provide much needed services to the Disability Community.

As many of you know, Shocktober is our largest fundraising event. However, as The Arc's CEO Lisa Kimball shared, “The owners of Paxton Campus, who have donated use of the property to The Arc of Loudoun since 2008, have plans to bring multiple nonprofit organizations that serve children onto the campus. As a result, Carlheim Manor is no longer available for The Arc’s use, leaving us without a place to hold our award-winning Haunted House, ShocktoberTM. We explored several alternate locations, but our Haunt Master determined that none were suitable – leaving The Arc with a projected $500,000 net loss for the year. Because the need for advocacy, education, therapy, and support for people with disabilities and their families in our region continues to grow exponentially, we needed to find a creative way to raise funds without our beloved Haunted House. The Arc is very excited about teaming with our amazing partners Ion International Training Center and, of course, They Might Be Giants to bring our Haunt Party and Concert to life and raise much-needed funds to serve our community”.

We appreciate your support and partnership as we together advocate for, educate, serve, and support people with disabilities and their families.
