Donate through a trust

We receive a large part of our fundraising income from charitable trusts and foundations. These grants vary in size and can either be a one-off donation or part of committed support over several years. Sometimes a trust will fund a project in its entirety, but more often they will donate part of the costs of a project. In the past, our Autism Helpline, Information Centre and regional development teams have all attracted trust support.

In addition to Charitable Trusts, we also receive grants from the National Lottery Charities Board, Department of Health and Welsh Assembly. Funding of this type is usually given to further particular projects, such as a mobile pre-vocational training scheme for adults with autism in Newport, South Wales, and our national volunteering and befriending scheme.

As we expand and pioneer more new initiatives, the support of charitable trusts becomes even more crucial to helping us to achieve our aims.

Donate from the USA

If you are a US taxpayer and would like to support us, we recommend donating through CAFAmerica.
As a US 501(c)(3) public charity, gifts to CAFAmerica are fully tax-deductible. Since US donors are not able to make tax-deductible gifts directly to foreign not-for-profit organisations, many use CAFAmerica to fulfill their global giving objectives.
CAFAmerica currently accepts cash as well as cheques, wire transfers, credit cards and stocks. In addition, CAFAmerica can partner with other US public charities to help donors liquidate high-value tangible gifts such as artwork, property or any other illiquid assets, and grant the proceeds to a foreign not-for-profit organisation of their choice.
CAFAmerica provides due diligence to verify that monies are being used for their intended purposes.
