Autism Acceptance Month

This April, the Autism Society of America is proud to continue its fourth annual #CelebrateDifferences campaign in honor of Autism Acceptance Month. Everyday, we work to create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community to live fully. We believe that acceptance is creating a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it. And by everyone, we mean every unique individual: the implacable, inimitable, and irreplaceable you.

Your support helps us connect Autistic individuals and their networks of support to education, resources, advocacy, and above all, to each other.

Alternate Ways to Support

If you’re looking for an alternate way to support the Autism Society, you can also consider the following options:

Are you paying premiums for a life insurance policy you no longer need? Consider donating it to the Autism Society. Utilizing a well-established concept known as life settlements, donated life insurance policies may be sold for the policy’s true market value. Those proceeds, in turn, can be reallocated to the initiatives and goals that our organization wishes to accomplish on behalf of those we serve.
