The Arpin Charitable Fund, also known as Arpin Strong, announced in its 2016 year-end report that it has raised over $80,000 and donated to 37 charitable organizations.
“2016 has been our most successful fundraising year yet, having raised $20,000 more than the previous year,” said Mark Dearborn, president of Arpin Strong. “This powerful momentum has allowed us to expand our charitable giving and draw public attention and support for many non-profits that are making a real difference for people in need and for social causes. We are grateful for every single donation we receive, no matter the size.”
The third Annual Arpin Strong Golf Tournament held in May was the single biggest fundraiser of the year, raising over $26,000. The funds were split equally in denominations of $6,500 and donated to the Tomorrow Fund, Serve Rhode Island, Hope Hospice & Palliative Care and the Coalition Against Pediatric Pain.
Over the past year, Arpin Strong conducted theme days, monthly raffles, and supported the efforts of Arpin’s Race Team in 10 events to raise funds.
Several Arpin employees founded Arpin Strong in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013 to show support for the relief efforts. The scope of the program expanded in the following months to aid the victims of disasters around the world, including the Oklahoma tornadoes and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The organization obtained its official 501(c)(3) status the same year.
Since its founding, Arpin Strong has raised over $234,000 and has contributed to dozens of charities.
