OPS FUNDING SUMMARY

COSTS TO RECOVER A CHILD


The expenses of each child recovery operation are as unique as the respective circumstances, necessary experties and the demands of the mission. On average, ARC operations in the field do not exceed 10 days. The ability to recovery a child at this rate depends on the success of critical research and analysis beforehand.




DONATIONS TO ARC GO DIRECTLY TO MISSIONS

ARC is currently working on DOZENS of open cases of abducted or missing children. ARC provides all-encompassing child recovery services at NO COST to the custodial guardians and with NO SALARY to its operators. Recovery operations are funded entirely by private donations.

ARC's sense of urgency rests in the fact that trafficked and abducted American children who are not rescued literally die each day at the hands of their exploiters. This horrific situation is one that no child should have to endure, the threat of death...rape...mental abuse, the fear of being abandoned, and the perception that no one cares.

All funds are applied directly to operational expenses for rescue missions. Your donations to ARC allow us to go into the most dangerous regions, where no other organizations or government entities will go, and pull children out of their dyre situation. Every American child should know that we are prepared to lay down our lives to save them. Each minute, each hour, each day without rescue is a day a child suffers. Together, we can make a difference and bring them home.

Rescue Mission Budget Includes


RESEARCH AND INVESTIGATION

The preparatory work that leads to the location and successful recovery of a child varies in cost, particularly when an abductor is moving the child from one location to another.


TRAVEL and HOTEL COSTS

Travel and hotel costs are some of the biggest expenses of ARC's operations. ARC's rescue team must travel to the location of the missing child, which may be in the US or anywhere in the world. Once the child is recovered, the team must return and safely transport the child to rejoin their custodial parent(s) at home in the US. Some trafficked children may require transportation to a safe house or rehabilitation program. Various such programs are spread across the US.


ARC's ability to use DONATED AIRLINE MILES and HOTEL POINTS would dramatically increase the number of children we could rescue each year. Donated miles and points would directly aid in saving these children from prolonged abuse and exploitation and would literally bring them home to their custodial parents.

An additional need would be for the ARC team, the child/children and custodial guardian(s) to be given priority in acquiring airline seats and hotel rooms instead of being placed on standby or a wait list. Because of the urgency of getting to the location of a missing child and securing their rapid extraction, wait times could greatly compromise the safety of ARC's team, the child and guardian.


FOREIGN ENTITIES

Although foreign counterparts are eager to assist with ARC operations, occasionally some foreign entities see an opportunity for profit, an unfortunate demand that can increase the cost for an international recovery operation.


BUDGET ITEMS for a STANDARD OPERATION


FUNDING PROJECT
Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF)

The SCIF will provide operational security in a world where the threat to children and rescue operations is so advanced and sophistocated that it often exceeds the means and capabilities of police departments and FBI. The propogators of child exploitation and criminal enterprise are sophistocated and resourced enough to hire people of our calibur to counter operations to rescue children. Their goal is sabotage, which is most often attempted through breach of communications.

ARC is pursuing funding for the build-out of a mobile Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF).
The SCIF will serve as a secure operations command center and research facility. ARC's missions require the use of secure communications and research portals for Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI). Without these capabilities ARC's efforts would be greatly crippled, and the safety of our operators compromised.


Security in Depth (SID) addresses the factors that enhance the probability of detection before actual penetration to the SCIF occurs. SID is a multilayerd approach, which effectively creates a defense against potential threats. The plans and budget for the SCIF are available upon request.

ARC'S SUSTAINABLE FUNDING PLAN


The financial advisors of Edward Jones have created the ARC ENDOWMENT and drawn up a schematic of this plan to present to potential investors. ARC's preferred funding plan would be to acquire a sum INVESTMENT of $100 million, which would remain untouched, but would generate interest/returns sufficient to fund ARC's operations full-time, year-round.

  • A fixed budget would prevent ARC from over-extending itself financially and would provide clear boundaries unaffected by the typical highs and lows of fundraising and financial uncertainty.
  • Sustainable, renewable income would save ARC the expense, time and effort of suppoorting a fundraising department to continually generate donations.

  • The consistent regeneration of funds would also provide a financial plan with longevity, making ARC an organization with a legacy that could continue indefinitely.
