Holiday Donations for the Curriculum Project

Dear Friends and Family,

Another year of school cuts have made services for children with autism particularly difficult. Classrooms are getting bigger. Early intervention services are being cut back. Schools are doing more with less.

Parents of Autistic Children of Oregon (POAC of Oregon) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps educate parents and teachers that work with children with autism. We identify research-based best practices in teaching so children with autism may lead a productive and fulfilled life.

We need your help. Our goal next year is to raise $10,000 to hire help in priming the pump: we will develop and offer FREE assessment and curriculum starter sets as proof of concept. With our proof of concept, we can determine how much each lesson will cost to develop and ask for funding from those that would like to continue the development in that area. Once the lessons are funded and created, the education community will field test the lessons to ensure students are learning what is expected. These lessons will be made available for free on the web much like Wikipedia. As textbooks and curriculum costs are rising, projects like these will become increasing important to schools who are no longer able to replace and update their materials.

Any amount is helpful. All contributions tell the IRS that, yes, POAC of Oregon should keep its nonprofit status because the public is willing to contribute to this needed cause.

So please join us in building the most progressive educational development and information center in the country. Your gift is about empowering parents and improving the lives of children with autism in Oregon and other states. It doesn't get any better than that.

Contributions can be made by:

1. Using your Paypal account - http://poac-or.org/donate

2. Send a check to: POAC of Oregon, 2913 NW Lincoln Ave., Corvallis, OR 97330

A contribution receipt will be promptly sent to your address in the form of a letter.

Thank you, in advance, for your support and generosity.

Most sincerely,

Katalin Pusztavari
Parents of Autistic Children of Oregon, President
