We have reached over $500 on our accessibility fundraiser! Thank you to all of those you have donated so far.
Keep the momentum up by sharing our fundraiser! We aim to create a pool of money that autistic people across Canada can draw from to improve the accessibility of their advocacy and community building projects. Applications will open once we achieve a large enough pool for distributing funds.
Donate to our fundraiser here.
Have any questions about how to improve the accessibility of your initiatives? Reach out to us and we can answer your questions! We have organizers experienced in inclusive event planning, including physical, cognitive, sensory, and financial access.
