The ATC Society

The ATC Society is the Arkansas Teacher Corps’ platform for monthly, sustaining donations or one-time yearly gifts. When you join the ATC Society as a contributing member, you become part of a larger movement to support novice teachers and rural education in the state of Arkansas.

Joining ATC Society, your contributions make a difference — no matter the amount! Check out our “5 Levels of Giving” to see how your monthly pledge or one-time donation can make a difference for Arkansas teachers and students today.

ATC Society members will be kept up-to-date on how their donations are used, will receive small gifts of gratitude from ATC as a show our appreciation for your support, and (with member approval) may be recognized throughout the ATC website, social media, presentations, printed materials, and more.
