Dear Friends,

THANK YOU dearly for your interest in supporting Project iAm as we enthusiastically prepare for our 13th annual edition of Acoustics for Autism this March 1, 2020. We are strategically sending this sponsorship packet earlier this year after receiving feedback from sponsors who like to plan for charitable support prior to year’s end for budgeting purposes. And, as you can see, the first Sunday comes a bit earlier this year.

In 2019, our “little event” profited a record-breaking $90,000 on a very snowy day in March. This money will go directly to where it is needed the most — to fund out-of-pocket expenses for families struggling with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It’s unbelievable to think that this free event will be our 13th year of bringing fun, music, camaraderie, and financial need to ASD families. The last 12 years would not have been possible without your support and generosity.

What started out in 2007 with a dedicated group of people performing on a small stage, in a small venue, all committed to making a big difference in the lives of those affected by ASD, has grown to 70 bands on 7 stages and 7 different locations. Despite the growth of the Acoustics for Autism event, there are some things that haven’t changed, including the huge hearts of those committed to providing support, information, resources, and financial assistance to families affected by autism. Here are a few other things we haven’t budged on:

  • Project iAm and its Acoustics for Autism event is 100% volunteer-based. After standard operating expenses, 100% of raised funds go directly into our scholarship fund to be distributed throughout the year, with a running total of over $250,000 to area families since 2008.
  • Project iAm is a 501(c)(3), not for profit organization.
  • In 2019, Project iAm distributed volunteer awards to any ASD family who donated their time to volunteering in an amount that exceeded $30,000 in addition to scholarships they received.
  • Project iAm is not associated with any other local or national societies, and our sole function is to raise money for families so they can continue to get their children the care they deserve. Our hope is that parents will get their children diagnosed early so they can begin living the fullest life possible. We do NOT promote one kind of treatment or education over another; we firmly believe that each child’s individual needs dictate which source of treatment best suits their disorder.

We hope that we can count on you to partner with us on this important mission. Please consider becoming a generous sponsor so we can continue to make a difference.

Yours in Charity and Progress,
Scott Hayes
Director of Fundraising
Project iAm/Acoustic for Autism

Note the deadline for submission this year is February 10, 2020 due to the early event date this year.
