Donate to ACT

ACT is Canada’s leading independent, not-for-profit specializing in providing families and professionals with evidence-informed resources to support the autism and special needs community with the information and training they need. In addition to developing our own resources, we provide an unrivaled information portal that responds to the diverse needs of our community across the lifespan, including the voice of adults, in multiple languages.

In 2018 ACT is focusing on sustaining and developing the information and training resources that we have developed with the support of the autism community. For details of our strategy to continue supporting families and professionals with evidence-informed, community focused resources, see the Support Us page.

We have several funds that you can choose to support in the Donate Online form which is processed by CanadaHelps. They will provide you with a tax receipt immediately. Please visit each funds home page for details of the resources provided:
