Donations to ASfAR to promote autism research: Thank you!
From time to time, ASfAR is approached by generous and passionate individuals who believe in the importance and value of research to improve the lives of autistic people and who ask us what they can do to support ASfAR related research. Some have mentioned they are planning fundraisers or a giving pool for their celebration and would like to donate the amount they make to ASfAR.
We are grateful for their passion, commitment and generosity and have set up a PayPal account where such donations can be anonymously made.
Between December 2018 and March 2019, ASfAR received a number of such anonymous donations. We would like to thank the donors for their contributions!
We would also like to inform them and our ASfAR membership that their donations will be dedicated to furthering research into autism by the award of two grants to worthy student researchers to support their research.
