 Monthly Donation

Every donation made to Autism Canada makes a difference in the lives of families living with autism.  Monthly giving is a great way to give throughout the year, and here’s why:

  • It’s so convenient! Your donation will come out automatically and you can change the amount and frequency of your donation at any time
  • Efficiency.  Fewer paper and administration costs for us, more impact directly from you, and friendlier for the environment!
  • Want to make a bigger gift? Break a larger donation into more manageable monthly installments
  • When we can count on steady income, we can provide a more stable plan to support children, adults and families living with autism. 

Memorial Donation

Many of our supporters choose to honour the memory of a loved one by setting up a memorial donation to Autism Canada. In doing so, you can ensure your loved ones will be remembered through support to a wonderful cause that is near and dear to their hearts.

Honourary Donation

Honourary donations have become an increasingly popular way of celebrating a memorable time in a close one’s life. You can donate to Autism Canada on behalf of a friend, loved one, or co-worker as a way of celebrating a wedding, birthday, anniversary, retirement, holiday or personal accomplishment of theirs. This opportunity is an excellent way to acknowledge success and hard work while giving back to a worthy cause.

Stock Donations

Donating appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual fund units is the most tax-effective way to make an outright gift during your lifetime.  Not only do donors receive a tax credit for their gift but they also pay no capital gains tax. Stock donations represent a win-win situation for everyone involved.  Click here to download your Share Transfer Form.


Leaving a bequest in your will is one of the most financially responsible ways of making a donation to Autism Canada, as it allows you to arrange a gift to Autism Canada while maintaining your cash flow and future financial security.

Corporate Donations

Being a good corporate citizen not only impacts the quality of life in the communities where you conduct business, but it demonstrates that you care about the health and well-being of children and their families. The message will come across loud and clear to the public: you are thankful to people for supporting your business and you want to give back to the community.  We can help by ensuring that your message of compassion and generosity is reaching your community in a very visible and meaningful way.
