The Heart of L’Arche Society

The Heart of L’Arche Society is the foundation for long-term financial stability for the L'Arche community here in Chicago

We're Seeking Visionaries

L’Arche Chicago is building a broad base of investors and visionaries who will stand with our core members and assistants in order to support the social and human vision of L’Arche in the Chicagoland area. The Heart of L'Arche Society is a community of committed financial supporters that are share a passion for the L'Arche way of life. 

How it works

To become a member, one makes a pledge of financial support for three consecutive years at a level of at least $1,000. These pledges make possible greater long-term growth and sustainability in our community. Currently, we have established three giving levels in order to further develop more concrete structures of sustainability and growth:

Friendship - A commitment between $1,000 and $5,000 per year for 3 years

Fellowship - A commitment between $5,000 and $24,000 per year for 3 years

Partnership - A commitment of $25,000 and up per year for 3 years

These levels exist in order to encourage others to be more intentional about their personal growth and intentionality in giving, regardless the amount. Since launching the Heart of L’Arche Society in August, we’ve had nine friends join with generous three-year pledge commitments–totaling over $22,000/year for the next three years! We warmly invite you to join us in this movement of growth and sustainability for L’Arche Chicago

Deepening and Growing

This initiative results in several immediate impacts:

• Sustains the daily life of the L’Arche Atlanta family and enables the ripple of transformation to extend into and outward from the community.
• Lays the foundation for a future capital campaign by cultivating confidence that L’Arche Atlanta is ready to expand and impact more lives.


Heart of L’Arche Society members will be invited to convene periodically as part of the L’Arche family. During these gatherings, members will have the opportunity to reflect on the community’s development and share their insights. Members will be recognized for their long-term investment in the vision and mission of L’Arche.

Curious? Please let us know, and we would love to discuss possibilities with you. Call our community director Curt Armstrong at 678.446.5790 or development manager and house assistant Tim Moore at 904.642.8750 to learn more.
