Fundraising for Autreat!

First, some background.  This year, we’ve found that the Johnstown
campus is going to charge a significant increase for Autreat.  While
we haven’t decided on Johnstown vs. another location yet, we do
recognize that Autreat’s costs have increased a lot over the years,
putting a strain on attendees.  We expect to have to increase costs
again this year, possibly significantly in some fee categories.  We
hate doing this, but it’s not possible to run Autreat at a significant
loss.

The only way to avoid or minimize this completely, short of a miracle
venue dropping from the sky (unlikely at best - Johnstown, for
instance, was cheaper than many other venues and charges us
below-market rates, less than they charge many other groups), is for
us to raise money that can be used to offset the cost of Autreat.

If you are interested in donating to Autreat, to help lower the costs
of this event, your donation would be greatly appreciated.  You can
make such a donation via ASAN, if you indicate that you would like
your donation to go towards Autreat.

ASAN will donate the full amount, minus Paypal fees (if any), to
Autreat.  ASAN is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation may have
tax benefits if you live in the USA.

BY CHECK THROUGH THE MAIL:

Make check payable to AUTISTIC SELF ADVOCACY NETWORK, not Autreat!
Write “For Autreat” in the MEMO field.

IF YOU DON’T PUT “FOR AUTREAT” IN THE MEMO FIELD, THE MONEY WILL GO
INTO ASAN’S GENERAL FUND AND NOT BE USED FOR AUTREAT.

Mail to:
Autism Network International
c/o Autistic Self Advocacy Network
PO Box 66122
NW Washington, DC 20035


BY PAYPAL:

THANK YOU:

Thanks, ASAN, for providing this method of donation for Autreat.  They
are generously handling the logistics of this and are also an autistic
organization that would benefit from donations.

Cost getting covered means lower prices for attendees like me who can’t afford big costs!
