Host an Event

Autism Speaks has a proud tradition of supporting grassroots initiatives to raise awareness and funds. You can join that proud tradition by hosting an event in your community. Event ideas include dinners, auctions, poker runs and dine-to-donate nights as well as smaller scale events such as car washes and dress down days.

Here are some fun ideas to get you started:

  1. Organize a puzzle piece campaign in your community
  2. Create your own event - ideas include dinners, car washes, dine/shop-to-donate events 
  3. Participate in or start a local Student Club
  4. Start an online fundraising campaign
  5. Enter into a Third-Party Letter of Agreement  
  6. Partner with Autism Speaks for an event. Typically these events are on a national basis and raise over $250,000. For the partner events, a commercial co-venture agreement is necessary.

Before you start, please contact us so that we may assist you in your efforts. 

Disclaimer:  Autism Speaks assumes no liability or costs associated with third-party events. If you have questions about tax, insurance, or legal issues please consult the appropriate advisors.

We appreciate your interest and your efforts and look forward to working with you!
