Is AutismOklahoma part of a national organization?
NO. and every penny you have donated, or will donate, to us stays in Oklahoma to serve 4,500 Oklahoma children, adults and families each year. We are not part of a national umbrella organization that takes a portion of what we are given. When you support AutismOklahoma, you Live Local, Love Local, and Give Local.
Why does it matter?
1 in 54 Oklahoma children are on the autism spectrum. It is likely that you know, or will know, a family impacted by autism. More children are diagnosed with autism than Cancer, AIDS and Diabetes combined. The PieceWalk is a day for thousands to come together to collectively love these children, teens and adults.
Where does my money do?
Your tax-deductible donation is 100% local and provides support for the 4,500 children, adults and families directly served by us each year in 13 communities throughout Oklahoma. Our programs are free or nearly free, and 95 cents of each dollar raised goes directly back into programs. Learn more about our innovative programs at AutismOklahoma.org
We create supportive programs that allow our participants to succeed. Traditional community programs are not equipped to offer families impacted by autism the programs and services we do. We have carved out a highly-successful, creative and unique niche of filmmaking, art, creative writing and other interest-based programs that reveal the talents of our participants.
