2020 Annual Appeal: A Lifetime of Opportunities

Will you help us continue to break barriers for our community?

Donate to the Annual Appeal


Despite all of this year’s challenges, we have not stopped serving our autism community. 

Our COVID-19 Response

When New York closed down all non-essential businesses, we worked around the clock to check in on families as well as individuals living alone. We talked with them about their physical and mental wellbeing, referred them to essential services, and even arranged drop-offs of supplies when needed.

We shared educational resources and free online activities to make staying at home a little more fun. We made it our mission to keep our community connected and supported.

Your generosity has made this work possible. Thank you!

The Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region continues to lead the charge to create opportunities for individuals on the autism spectrum at every stage of life. Every day, we offer informative resources and compassionate support to local families and individuals affected by autism.

We’re Here to Help for Every Stage of Life

While many in-person workplaces remain closed, we continue to connect young adults with job opportunities as they open up through our Gig Works program. These jobs help them develop independence, social connections, and a sense of self-worth through their work.

There are so many more adults that need our help! You can help make sure that no young adult with autism is isolated from their community.

Donate to the Annual Appeal

One in 54 children are diagnosed with autism every year, and as the rate of diagnosis continues to grow, everyone knows someone whose life is touched by autism. While there is some uncertainty around what 2021 will bring, you can count on us to continue supporting our community however we can.

Your gift will help more children and adults with autism experience a lifetime of opportunities. Our autism community is counting on you!

Supporting the Greater Capital Region Community

Every dollar donated to the Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region stays local. Your gift directly helps individuals and families navigate autism with compassionate support. Our whole community benefits when individuals of all abilities are able to take part. Together, we can bring a lifetime of opportunities to every person touched by autism in the Greater Capital Region. 

We thank you for your continued support of our loved ones living with autism. Our community needs your help to ensure our work can continue in the year to come.
