What is a Third Party Fundraising Event?
Volunteer run fundraising events are fundraisers aimed to benefit AutismBC that are planned and implemented by individuals, groups or companies. These fundraising events can range from community fundraisers to work fundraisers, and are a way to connect your community through a great cause and a fun event. Today, 1 in every 46 children aged 6-18 are diagnosed with autism in British Columbia, so there is a large chance someone in your community is on the autism spectrum. Here are some ideas to help spur creativity.

Although you are coordinating the event, we aren’t letting you do it alone. Once you have become a registered partner we would love to provide support and assistance in any area you need.

These will help your event look professional, well planned and share where people’s donations will go.
We will also assist in promoting your event to the community through our social media pages.
Once you have completed the registration form and shared your plans we will be happy to share our logo and brand guidelines with you.
We also assist you by providing a template form to gather information of donors who are eligible ($20 or more donation) for a donation tax receipt.
