Grow Acceptance


The Autism Ambassador Program is not only Autism New Jersey’s cornerstone campaign to spread autism awareness and acceptance but it also raises funds that directly impact individuals with autism in New Jersey. 

Why are fundraisers important to Autism New Jersey?

More than half of the funds that allow Autism New Jersey to serve the autism community come from the community and support much-needed services:

Bake Sales/Awareness Items Sales

Order Awareness ItemsBake sales and item sales are fantastic for all locations and age groups. Plan them in your schools, workplaces, place or worship, outside stores and even at local sporting events. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Tell people through social media, email or fliers about your bake or awareness item sale beforehand so they come prepared with money ready to spend
  • Set the scene! Decorate your sales table with balloons, banners, and table cloths so that it is clearly marked an autism awareness event
  • Order and display autism awareness table tents. This NEW sales tool includes a customizable side for sale prices or awareness messages
