Pulse of The Arc is a young professionals volunteer group dedicated to raising awareness and increasing funds to support quality client services for people with developmental disabilities at The Arc San Francisco. Pulse hosts fundraising events like happy-hours, art shows and bowling nights, plus classes and outings that enrich the lives of people with disabilities and our community.
Pulse's recurring giving program, EmpowerFund, provides financial backing for three main areas:
1) Microenterprise- launching new businesses—and dreams—while teaching Arc clients skills necessary to be successful businesswomen and men.
2) Health and Wellness- funding healthy living classes, health educators, fitness equipment and nutritional meals throughout the year.
3) Recreational Activities- hosting and supporting weekend outings for clients as well as after-hours recreational programs and events.
