Annual Fund

Annual Giving helps to span the gap between tuition, grants, tax credit funding, and actual operating expenses.  Unrestricted funds give us the flexibility to allocate resources to areas that are needed most throughout the year.  By providing a gift, you are helping ASUA’s mission come to life.


This amount will buy a tank of gas for our van to transport students to inclusion activities or partner schools.


This amount will take one student on a field trip.


This would give a student an hour of speech therapy or OT.


This amount would buy a student an iPad to provide access for communication that will build skills for life-long learning and to maximize each child’s potential for independence.

Matching Gifts: Did you know that many companies match their employees’ donations to charitable organizations and that ASUA qualifies as one of those charitable organizations? Matching Gift donations are an easy way to double your Annual Fund donation to ASUA!

Memorial and tribute gifts: These are a wonderful way to honor a loved one. Not only is this type of giving both thoughtful and generous, but it’s a great way to contribute to ASUA as well. When you do this, a card will be sent to the honoree or their family.
