Host Your Own Event

As a non-profit organization, the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism depends on the generosity of supporters like you to help us improve the lives of children and families living with autism. Independent fundraising events and campaigns of any kind, on any scale, can truly make a difference by helping the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism raise funds and awareness. 


Volunteers are an important and valued part of our team at fundraising events.

You can volunteer in many different ways, whether it's by coming and helping out at an event or by volunteering your professional services or products for our events. We are always looking for new volunteers for all of our major annual events:
