UPDATE: April 18th, 2015
As of April 2, 2015, Aid for Autistic Children Foundation is adjusting it's mission to more specifically assist families and autistic person's individually. Times and the atmosphere concerning autistic people have changed and we're adjusting to meet that change. For those who have supported us (mainly the Tustin High School Key Club students, in Tustin, California), we are grateful and thankful to you all for seeing the bigger picture. Thank you to the organizations, business owners, entertainers, intellectuals, public servants, health care providers, a few members of the public, acquaintances and family members who believed in the original vision. Moving forward, we will continue to be part of the conversation concerning matters of fiscal responsibility for people on the spectrum and their families. We humbly thank you and graciously accept all continued support.
AACF, Inc. is a public charity dedicated to maintaining "Debt Forgiveness" funds that will be available 365 days a year. Our unique vision, for a national trust fund that benefits families coping with autism and adults with ASD, is singular. All donations of any kind are tax deductible. We take great pride in our ability to mobilize the general public and raise capital for this ambitious fund while making sure to take great care in how we apportion your dollars.
Here we will be providing our Annual Reports and Form 990 records for public review. All decisions concerning the apportionment of any "Debt Forgiveness" funds are voted on by the Board of Trustees. We are also registered with GuideStar®.
This program's success hinges on the grassroots mobilization and direct action of no less than 2% of the United States population (or 6.5 million people). It will only take this many people to help the program reach it's complete financial goal of raising $174,000,000 million for the Debt Forgiveness trust. That's it. Everyone giving $25.00 USD once, will accomplish AACF's goal. We're also using Facebook and Twitter social networks. It's our intention to reach the largest number and diversity of people while solidifying a dedicated support base for this mission.
Gifts of Stock
Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Aid for Autistic Children Foundation, Inc™. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
Becoming a Member, Partner or Sponsor will keep the doors open at AACF, Inc. As with any business, there will be day to day operation expenses. We have structured our foundation in a way that allows these special fees to go directly to sustaining daily operations only. We also intend on being the number one employer of autistic people and the parents of autistic children. Keeping the program open and available is just as important as raising funds to help the families and individuals in need. We cannot do one without the other. We are also in the process of creating a page that will feature our partners and sponsors. Members, with their permission, will be given honorable mention on our Facebook and Twitter social network pages. Contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on how you can become part of our family and help keep the doors open.
