Do you want to run a marathon or jump out of a plane? Host your own fundraising party? Or even just a give up a bad habit? Whatever you do, do it for The National Autistic Society and have an amazing day for autism! Check out our list of running, cycling and trekking events you can get involved in.

Or why not do something completely different? You could organise a car boot sale or garden party, run a disco, become a world record holder, host a golf day, go extreme and have a sponsored leg wax or head shave - or if you prefer not to lose your hair, just dye it a crazy colour and get your family and friends to sponsor you.

Here are some more ideas:

  • Why not host a brunch for your friends and family, with the help of our menus and handy resources?
  • How about some springtime fundraising?  Have a clear out and a fundraising jumble sale or organise an Easter egg hunt!
  • Enjoy the summer with some outdoors fundraising like a sports day or a BBQ. Summer's all about sport!
  • See in the autumn season with back to school fundraising or a Halloween party.
  • Or maybe stay cosy and indulge yourself during the winter with a cake sale or a Christmas collection?

And, of course, there are those memory-making special occasions, like weddings or birthdays - could you make them even more special by fundraising for autism?

Or, if you don't have time to organise something, why not just pop one of our money boxes in your school, home or office and watch the pennies turn into pounds? It all counts!

If you're still after some ideas, you might want to order a fundraising pack or speak to our amazing Supporter Care team, who have plenty of useful ideas, tips and advice on how you can support us and help those living with autism. Give us a call on 0808 800 1050 or email
