Support our mission


We do receive insurance and Medicaid reimbursements for our services. However, over 50% of our children have Medicaid as their primary insurance.  This means that for services that cost us $15 per unit to provide, we receive $8.10 per unit in reimbursement.  This is why we need your help. We rely on donations, grants, and fundraisers to cover the deficit.

Gifts Made in Someone's Honor

Today more than ever, people are showing appreciation for a loved one by celebrating a special occasion by donating to a particular cause. An honor gift is a meaningful way to commemorate a special occasion, honor a loved one, or celebrate someone you know on the Autism spectrum.

Memorial Gifts

A tribute gift is a meaningful way to commemorate the memory of a loved one who has touched your life.

Estate Planning

When deciding your estate-planning strategies, consider a charitable contribution option, which can help ACNM with a steady stream of income and potential tax benefits. There are numerous options for setting up a generous contribution in the estate plan. Please get in touch with your estate planner for more information.
