  • Is your child prepared now, or getting prepared? Are they getting those real life essential skills needed to reach their full potential?
  • Can they leave for college and take care of what’s needed? Can they find a job and keep a job? Can they shop and feed themselves? Can they take care of their laundry? Can they either drive themselves or use public transport to get to where they need to be? These are some of the areas that we need to prepare our children for? These are examples of the areas that we need to be focusing on. 
  • Our panel of experts – parents and professionals – will be prepared to answer many of those questions!

Are you struggling to let go of that old family car—the one that’s barely still ticking but you love so much? Donating is the perfect way to honor a car that has been more than just a car. And now is the perfect time. ASRC is celebrating Cartober, and when you donate your vehicle to us, our donation team will pick it up for free, sell it, and then use the proceeds to support our mission: To prepare those with ASD for the world, as we prepare the world for those with ASD.

Turn that old beloved car into a vehicle for change this fall.

campaigns are underway in your places of employment!

ASRC’s designation code is


Thank you for considering supporting us! You can also make your fundraising efforts count for more by checking your

employer’s matching funds policies. Contact the ASRC office for certification or any other help you need to process matching gifts! ASRC participates in the “double the donation” program, see the graphic below to check whether your company will match your donations! 


Employee matching gift programs are a type of corporate philanthropy set up to encourage employees to give back to their communities. These companies encourage community outreach by making donations to the same nonprofits that their employees have donated to. These programs have become quite widespread, but many donors have not heard of them or aren’t aware of their own match-eligibility. $4-7 billion in matching gift revenue is left on the table each year, and we want to work with our donors to claim some of it.

Keep and eye out for more details of upcoming events on our

Website, Facebook & Instagram pages.
