With a small financial contribution you can become an AU Member!
We offer 2 ways to become a member: monthly or yearly. Choose which ever suits your needs- you can pay a little bit each month, or you can save a little money overall by going for the yearly option.
We also offer a sliding scale option for people who need it. We operate on an “honor system” so please only choose this option if you need to. We understand that anyone can face hard times, we want everyone to be able to be a member.
You can also donate Scholarship Memberships. This is another way to support our work. These funds are used to provide memberships to people who could not otherwise join (due to financial hardship). (If you are having a rough time & want to join please contact Danny or Jade about how to obtain a scholarship.)
The money we raise from memberships is funneled right back into AU. We are truly a grassroots organization & we’re all volunteers. Memberships help us to support & pay for things like: programming, group supplies (for workshops, kitchen supplies, arts & crafts supplies, holiday, special occasion, & birthday celebration supplies etc), our website, venue costs & additional costs for putting on our events.
Remember all our events are put on by & for autistic people, and supported by families & allies.
Note: We understand that you might not have a chance to join before a meeting or event. We want you to come anyway!! We can always sign you up at the meeting.
