We literally could not do it without you! 100% of all tax-deductible donations go directly to defraying the costs of safeguarding children.

Our good friend and collaborator Rob Darby, about whose work you can learn more here and here, sadly passed away in 2019. While this was a disastrous loss for the Genital Autonomy movement, we are nevertheless grateful that he was able to plan ahead and support our work with a generous bequest.

If, like Rob, you would like to continue supporting ARC after your own life ends, so that children in the future will continue to be protected from genital cutting, you can amend your will to bequeath a portion of your resources to Attorneys for the Rights of the Child. Our IRS Identification Number is 94-3391556. Another convenient way to give is to list Attorneys for the Rights of the Child directly as a beneficiary of your retirement account, bank account, real estate, life insurance plan, or other asset.

For more information about supporting genital autonomy in your legacy, please contact J. Steven Svoboda, Executive Director, Attorneys for the Rights of the Child, at arc@post.harvard.edu or 510-827-5771. After offering our profuse gratefulness, we will confidentially discuss with you the details of your situation and wishes.
