ORGANIZATION: Autism Included

  • 4 people are interested

Fundraising allows Autism Included to realize our mission, pay operating costs, develop educational programs and resources, and make improvements that can benefit so many lives! Currently the organization is funded largely through grants and direct services, leaving a large potential for funding unrealized. You will be a pivotal player in positioning the organization to make an even greater impact. We are looking for a candidate that is passionate and driven that can help us grow and set us up for continued success!

This role is part of our Public Relations Committee which is led by Christopher Whittier, the Chair of the Board. Our team is small, collaborative, fun to work with and communicates often. We are here to empower you and provide support.


  • Establish a diversified portfolio of donors, grants, and sponsorships to fund the Autism Included mission and programs
  • Help establish best practices, processes and tools for fundraising efforts
  • Attend committee meetings as needed (virtual)
  • Grow the Fundraising Committee as needed to keep up with the growth and needs of the organization.
  • Partner with the Board of Directors and other volunteer roles to set and execute on strategic initiatives.


  • Excellent communication skills - You will be building relationships, and representing the organization in both written and in person interactions, a cheerful and passionate demeanor will be key!
  • Highly organized - You will work together with the Board of Directors on initiatives and will ensure that new engagements and progress are tracked and visible for updates and reporting.
  • Experience in non-profit fundraising and pre-existing relationships with RI based donors is a huge plus!

Work environment

Candidate should be RI based. "Every day" responsibilities can be done remote. There may be opportunities that would be beneficial to pursue in person (attending an event, meeting with a potential donor or sponsor, etc), so please me open to those types of initiatives if required.

Autism Included envisions a world in which autistic children can genuinely grow and flourish within inclusive, nurturing, and affirming educational and community environments. Our vision is a future where every autistic child can navigate educational and community spaces that are structured to recognize, respect, and maximize their unique potential. We facilitate culture change to foster authentic development for autistic children. We re-envision education by designing strategic frameworks for families, schools, and communities.


Autism Included was founded to support autistic children. We do this by advocating for a safe and supportive culture, providing autism-affirming services, and facilitating culture change to make the world a place in which autistic children can thrive. Learn more at www.autismincluded.com
