Fundraising revenue goes directly to supporting our important work.
Support Team ASAT in the New York City Marathon
ASAT is given the opportunity to have several runners participate in the New York City Marathon each year. Donations can be made to support individual runners or ASAT on our Crowdrise page.
If you have ever wanted to run in the New York City Marathon, here is an opportunity for you to run and contribute to a worthy charity. By joining Team ASAT, a fundraising page will be set up for you on-line through the NYC marathon and Crowdrise. Your friends and family will then sponsor you to help you meet your fundraising goal.
If you are interested in helping or would like to consider running in the future for Team ASAT, please contact Ruth Donlin at email@example.com.
Donation jars can be displayed at a wide array of business establishments to help educate consumers and to raise money to support ASAT’s mission. ASAT will provide the materials needed (Donation jars, an ASAT information insert card for the donation jar, ASAT business cards, and signage) for any participating business.
ASAT appreciates our participating fundraising businesses and in order to reciprocate our gratitude for helping us to promote evidence-based treatments in autism, we will provide publicity and social media support to build awareness about the business. Here are several examples of businesses in Maine, New Jersey, and California that have already successfully participated.
Their efforts have been documented in our newsletter. For example:
- Yogurtland article (Vol.8, No.3, Page 7)
- Dairy Queen article (Vol.7, No.3, Page 5)
- Dairy Queen article (Vol.10, No.1, Page 26)
Paper Icon Campaign
Paper icon initiatives have been successful in banks, retail stores, coffee shops, etc. ASAT can provide donation paper icons for your business to sell at the register(s) for a designated time frame chosen by the business. Icons can be sold for $1 or the customer can donate at a level of his/her choice. April is Autism Awareness month, which is a wonderful time to bring awareness, but a paper icon campaign can be implemented any time throughout the year.
If you are a restaurant owner or manager, you may be interested in supporting ASAT through our Dine InDeed program. On selected days, a percentage of diners’ food bills is donated to ASAT. We will supply:
- Sign for door (to showcase your benevolent efforts to support ASAT)
- Dine InDeed check stuffers, ¼ page postcards, or glossy sheets based on your preferences
- A self-addressed, stamped envelope for checks to be sent at the end of your Dine InDeed participation.
Participating restaurants are asked to do the following:
- Display the sign in your window showcasing your participation in Dine InDeed
- Have host and/or servers tell guests about the charity program when they are seated.
- When the bill comes, servers will remind the guests that a percentage of the food bill will support ASAT.
ASAT is committed to supporting our participating businesses via ASAT’s website, Facebook page, and quarterly e-newsletter that is distributed over 10,000 subscribers.
