Fundraising Tips

Prepping for the big day

Cash and check donations can be dropped off before the day of the Walk to The Autism Project's Johnston office Monday-Friday between 9am and 5pm. Please be sure to indicate your team name when dropping off donations.

Funds can also be turned in the day of the Walk. Please make a note on all checks in the memo line of your team name. It is advisable to convert all cash to checks if you are planning to hand in donations at the Walk itself to ensure proper team credit.

Organize a meeting place for all of your team members to meet at the Walk. You may want to make a sign with your team name on it. Please contact jmontalbano@lifespan.org to obtain a map of the park.

Have FUN and be sure to take pictures! We love to share team photos on The Autism Project Facebook page!

Post Walk

The Autism Project will send out thank you letters for all donations over $75.00. If your walkers need letters for their taxes please have them send in checks payable to The Autism Project with the team name clearly designated on the memo line of each check submitted. This will enable us to accurately determine your total team contribution.

We also encourage you to send out a personal thank you note or email to your team members and to family and friends who give!

Want to share your team photos with us? E-mail them to Erica at erica.busillo@lifespan.org and we will post them on The Autism Project Facebook page!
