With the help of Facebook, it is easier than ever to fundraise for the Autism Society of Maine! It’s only takes a few minutes and is a safe place for donations.
Creating a Facebook fundraiser lets your network know that you care about our progams, and shows your dedication for our cause. Facebook fundraisers do more than raise money. They help get the word out about our programs and how we can help families, individuals, educators, and the community.
