What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that happens each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a time when the world comes together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and nonprofits.

Autism Speaks Canada is calling all Canadians to join the global movement on November 30th and show the world how generous we are.

We are requesting all Canadian from coast to coast to coast to support Autism Speaks Canada’s mission to promote solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of people with autism and their families by donating generously.

Matching Gift Donor

Great news we have a matching donor! Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, your gift will be DOUBLED, up to $5,000.

Together, lets create an inclusive Canada where autistic people can reach their full potential.

"Around the world Giving Tuesday is a grassroots movement that illustrates the impact we can have when we all pull together. The investments we make — in both time and funding — can help solve the urgent problems of today and will make the next generation stronger."

- President Barack Obama
