Funding

board meeting
The nominal rental fee collected by Ark House covers slightly less than half of the cost of maintaining an apartment. Thus, an important part of our work is raising money to meet the remaining operational costs.

Ark House is an entirely volunteer organization with no paid staff and our Board of Directors actively manages all aspects of the project. All funds that we receive are applied to operating expenses.

As a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non profit, all contributions to our organization are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed under current IRS rulings.

Donations 

Donations from individuals, philanthropic organizations, foundation awards, fundraising events and corporate gifts help continue the work of Ark House. All donations are greatly appreciated.
