GET INVOLVED

Mansfield Autism Statewide Services is a not for profit organisation overseen by a volunteer board and is registered as a charity. Your online donation via PayPal is fully tax deductible and will be used to support Victorian families living with autism.

Your donation will be used toward the masterplan development at our new farm, unless otherwise requested and agreed.

Operation Gamechanger

We have recently purchased a 100 acre farm, just out of Mansfield. Our vision is that it will be home to new facilities and expanded services, so that we can support more families. Our current premises are tired and we just do not have the room to expand to cater for the demand for our services.

Our masterplan for the farm includes a new term therapeutic school, day school, residences, recreational facilities, family camp, equine therapy centre and professional development training facilities. The total cost is around $24m and we are seeking about $16m from government, over $3m from donations and philanthropy and we will sell existing land and buildings to fund the balance.

Fundraisers

Your assistance in raising funds for Mansfield Autism would be fantastic. If you have an idea about how to raise funds and would like to chat it through, we would love to hear from you. Before you start, you will need a letter from us confirming you are acting on our behalf.

Goods

Mansfield Autism has a healthy list of things we need for the farm and for our ongoing programs. If you have goods, services or equipment that you are happy to donate and you think may be of value to us, please contact us. Recent donations of goods include a fire pit and whipper snipper for the farm.

 

Corporate partnerships

We know your corporate social responsibility matters to you as does your reputation. Our 50 year history of supporting families living with autism has been achieved by recognising the importance of partnerships and collective responsibility. If you are interested in partnering with us to achieve great things, we would love to hear from you.

Volunteer

We would love a hand. Your skill set and enthusiasm may be just what we need. We do have project working bees throughout the year. And the development of the farm will uncover all manner of opportunities. We know your time is valuable, but if you think you can help out please let us know.

Leave a gift in your will

Mansfield Autism treats gifts left to us in Wills very carefully. Funds are invested for the future and will be used for ‘Operation Gamechanger’ unless your instructions indicate otherwise. It is important to get advice regarding your will and we recommend you discuss your intentions with your family.

Your support, no matter how small, will make a difference. Thank you for your consideration.
