$20 for 20 Years Campaign

August 2017

Dear Autism Project Family Member-

You changed the life of a young man with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. This is his story:



“Hello! My name is Conor. I’m 20 years old, and I go to Rhode Island College. The Autism Project, I have to say, is one of the best places in the world. I remember when I first came here – I was just a kid - and how welcomed I felt. With a place like this, nobody feels alone. Nobody feels left out. Everybody feels included. I went from being a “me” to a “we” at The Autism Project – from an outsider to somebody that is part of a team. The opportunities I have had and the friends I have made here are invaluable. I would not be where I am today without The Autism Project. I feel it is so important to tell you that The Autism Project helps lives - they save lives. They make lives better. And they make the world a better and more inclusive place. Thank you!”

Conor is thriving at Rhode Island College and has a promising future ahead of him. This is a dream come true for Conor and his family. A dream that you made possible.

The Autism Project is about to close out its 20th year–20 years of helping children, teens, and young adults with autism reach their full potential and live their best possible lives. But without financial support from community members like you, The Autism Project and its essential programs and services would cease to exist. Programs like social skills groups that changed Conor’s life. We need your help to keep these programs going.

The Autism Project’s fiscal year ends on September 30, and we still have $20,000 to raise to meet our goals. Won’t you please consider a gift to our annual fund? Your gift - no matter the size - will ensure that we can continue to help young people on the autism spectrum chase their dreams.

We can’t thank you enough for your generosity and for making our first 20 years possible! You are truly transforming lives like Conor’s every single day.
