Fund for Community Reparations for Autistic People of Color’s Interdependence, Survival, and Empowerment
We are proud and excited to announce the official launch of a fund for direct support, mutual aid, and reparations by/for autistic people of color!
We first created the Fund in June 2018 with support from the American Association of People with Disabilities Hearne Leadership Award, along with a portion of all royalties from sales of All the Weight of Our Dreams: On Living Racialized Autism.
Since we launched the Fund, we have given nearly $20,000 to individual autistic people of color. We rely mostly on small donations from community members to survive. Sometimes donations as small as $5 can make a huge difference in what we can offer to people in need.

Please add the note “APOC” to your donation to make sure we receive it. We welcome donations as small as a couple dollars and as large as thousands. Your donations are tax-deductible as our fiscal sponsor, the Autistic Women and Nonbinary Network, is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Its federal tax identification number is 27-5133111.
