Donations to Autreat would be
A (US-tax-deductible) Way to Help Fund Autreat
This year, we've found that the Johnstown campus is going to
charge a significant increase for Autreat. While we haven't
decided on Johnstown vs. another location yet, we do
recognize that Autreat's costs have increased a lot over the
years, putting a strain on attendees. We expect to have to
increase costs again this year, possibly significantly in
some fee categories. We hate doing this, but it'...s not
possible to run Autreat at a significant loss.
The only way to avoid or minimize this completely, short of
a miracle venue dropping from the sky (unlikely at best -
Johnstown, for instance, was cheaper than many other venues
and charges us below-market rates, less than they charge
many other groups), is for us to raise money that can be
used to offset the cost of Autreat.
If you are interested in donating to Autreat, to help lower
the costs of this event, your donation would be greatly
appreciated. You can make such a donation via ASAN, if you
indicate that you would like your donation to go towards
ASAN will donate the full amount, minus Paypal fees (if
any), to Autreat. ASAN is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your
donation may have tax benefits if you live in the USA.
BY CHECK THROUGH THE MAIL:
Make check payable to AUTISTIC SELF ADVOCACY NETWORK, not
Write "For Autreat" in the MEMO field.
IF YOU DON'T PUT "FOR
AUTREAT" IN THE MEMO FIELD, THE MONEY WILL GO INTO
ASAN'S GENERAL FUND AND NOT BE USED FOR AUTREAT.
