We love working with individuals and companies who want to run fundraisers to benefit our work! If you want to run your own event, please contact David Woods, Development Director, at 302-224-6020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of these events take place in or around April, Autism Awareness Month.

Small or large, every fundraising event counts. The only limit to fundraising is your imagination! Please consider organizing an event to raise funds and awareness for autism today.
Autism Delaware Annual Fund
This year marks Autism Delaware’s 20th year of serving individuals and families affected by autism. We are proud of the immeasurable impact we’ve had on the Delaware community. This impact would not have been possible without the benefactors, community partners, volunteers, legislators, and the autism community who have supported us over the last 20 years. Thank you!
The incidence of autism was 1 in 150 when we began, and today has grown to 1 in 59. Autism Delaware is committed to meeting the rising demands of our families and we hope you will continue to be committed to supporting our mission. Please accept this invitation to contribute to our 2018 Annual Fund. The gifts you give today are securing the programs and services of tomorrow, next year, and for the next 20 years.
Who is Autism Delaware?
Founded in 1998 as a small group of families sharing a common experience, we have grown into a statewide community-based organization serving thousands of families.
Though not affiliated with any national program or organization, we all work in the same spirit to support the mission of autism.
We are more than 400 volunteers helping to make our programs and events strong.
We are 95 full- and part-time staff who not only provide critical services, like adult vocational programming, residential support, awareness, advocacy, and case management for families…
We also offer crucial opportunities to reduce the isolation often felt by those with disabilities by bringing families together to share with each other and create safe and supportive environments for all. This growing combination of supports provided throughout the state of Delaware empowers individuals and families affected by autism to learn, grow and live full lives as included and valued members of our community.
Most of our volunteers and many of our staff are parents or siblings of people on the spectrum and have a personal connection to autism. We are the community we support.
Our future impact is dependent on your continued partnership.
Sincerely, Brian Hall
Executive Director, Autism Delaware
