ASF Fundraising Outpaces Key National Index

(January 21, 2011) Donations to the Autism Science Foundation significantly outpaced the national Blackbaud Index of Charitable Giving, a key index that measures donations to nonprofits, in the latest reporting period. For the three months ending in November 2010, the organizations in the index saw contributions grow by just 0.3 percent compared with those same months in 2009. Autism Science Foundation’s donations increased by 9.0 percent during the same period.

“We are so grateful to our donors and supporters who continue to show confidence in our mission and programs and are choosing to increase their support of ASF, even during these very challenging economic times” said Karen London, co-founder and board member of the Autism Science Foundation.
