Third Party Fundraising Events

  • Raising funds for AutismBC is a great way to support individuals on the autism spectrum and their families living in your community. Hosting a fundraising event, or donating a % of sales, or setting up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook can also be a fun way to build greater awareness and understanding of autism.
