Mission Statement

The Parker Autism Foundation is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization dedicated to serving children with autism spectrum disorders and their families. Our goal is to raise funds to provide scholarships for services for those children who so desperately need the assistance but whose families cannot afford the often overwhelming cost associated with these therapies, camps or educational programs. We also believe that education of parents, family members and the community is critical. We believe that every child with autism deserves the chance to succeed!

Description

We are looking for people to help with various fundraising opportunities. We need volunteers to plan, organize and market different fundraising events in the next 6 months. These volunteers would need to be able to make calls to local businesses, go out into the community, and organize these events. Some of the events we would like to plan are a Ladies Christmas Luncheon that would give local home businesses tables at this event to sell their product. In return the foundation would receive a portion from their sales for that day. We would also like to have a volunteer contact local restaurants to set up this program. Example: Foster's Grill Donates 10% of their profits to the foundation on the 1 st Tuesday of the each month. We are also looking for volunteers to silicate donations for our on line auction in October. These volunteers would need to call, or go out into the community to get donations for this event. All the money raised will be used to send children with autism to a special needs summer camp for 6 weeks, allow parents to attend a special needs educational conference, or to pay for different therapies not covered by insurance.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with office filing, organizing, and data entry.
