Where do my donations go?

Thank you for choosing to donate to The Autism Research Foundation!

Your generous gifts help us provide answers for families experiencing autism through neurobiology research, while providing them with low-cost inclusion programs that help individuals with autism improve their quality of life as they grow to be independent adults. We pride ourselves on helping families experiencing autism now and in the future.

Currently, we need donations toward our new inclusion programs so that we can: train our volunteer coordinators in first aid and safety, coordinate social fundraising events like our Free Family Sports Days, and organize sustainable relationships with local businesses who help us offset our overhead costs by hosting fundraisers and donating equipment.

Unless otherwise specified, we will designate your donation to one of the categories below. We look forward to putting your thoughtful donations to good use!
