Building a Better World Together

At Autism Speaks, our focus is on creating holistic partnerships that benefit both your organization and the autism community.

We need your help

Autism affects 1 in 36 children and 1 in 45 adults in the U.S.

In our pursuit of building a better world, your partnership is a vital catalyst for change, enabling us to meet the pressing needs of the autism community with urgency, compassion, and a collective sense of purpose. 

Through corporate partnerships, fueled by a shared commitment to addressing the pressing and urgent needs of the autism community, we can embark on a course that will have the largest impact on our community and address the areas of greatest need. 

Partnership benefits

Maximize your company's impact by partnering with Autism Speaks. Your commitment translates into meaningful benefits for both your organization and the autism community: 

Make a measurable difference  

At Autism Speaks, 86 cents of every dollar we receive helps funds programs and services to increase understanding and acceptance, advance ground-breaking research, increase childhood screening and interventions, help young people transition to adulthood, and ensure that our community has access to reliable information and services across the life span. Our work is possible because of companies like yours.  

Engage customers and drive sales  

We work closely with our partners to support and implement programs that seamlessly align with your business goals, culture, and customer needs. By enhancing your association with Autism Speaks, you not only demonstrate your commitment to a worthy cause but also foster customer engagement and drive sales through purpose-driven initiatives. 

Inspire employee pride and team building  

Studies show that 9 out of 10 employees experience heightened pride when their company commits to a worthwhile cause that positively impacts families in their communities and they can get directly involved by volunteering. By joining forces with Autism Speaks, you not only contribute to a meaningful cause but also inspire a sense of pride among your employees, fostering a positive workplace culture and team cohesion. 

Build more inclusive workplaces and communities 

Your partnership extends beyond financial support; it actively contributes to building more inclusive workplaces and communities. By aligning with Autism Speaks and participating in programs like Workplace Inclusion Now (WIN), or earning an Autism Friendly Designation training, positions your organization as a leader in fostering understanding, acceptance, and support for individuals with autism. 

Reach key audiences  

Our dedicated staff work with you to enable a customized experience that meets your philanthropic and marketing goals. By partnering with Autism Speaks, you gain access to a unique platform that allows you to reach key audiences effectively, fostering a deeper connection with your community.
