What is Toonies for Autism?  

Toonies for Autism is a unique and innovative fundraiser that focuses on raising funds to enhance educational capacity for students with autism, while also supporting autism programs and services in the community.   

In 2019, Toonies for Autism raised over $20,000 to celebrate neurodiversity, increase autism understanding and acceptance, and purchase resources to enhance the school experience of students on the autism spectrum. 

Reschedule of Toonies for Autism: 
Autism Nova Scotia will be rescheduling the upcoming Toonies for Autism to celebrate Autism Acceptance Month in April 2021. We have made this decision after assessing feedback from our community and partnering schools regarding their capacity to run this program due to their concerns surrounding COVID-19,   
This change will ensure more schools can participate and raise much-needed funds for autism support, programs, and services within their school communities this academic year.  
Have you already registered for Toonies for Autism?  
If your school has already registered with us this year, your registration will automatically be held over to next year.

Autism Nova Scotia will be providing information packages and fundraising tips in mid-to-late January leading up to April to help make Toonies for Autism an incredible program!   

Please connect with Lauren Goerz at to discuss your options.  
If you have not already registered, consider registering now!  
We look forward to partnering with as many schools and day cares as possible across the province to celebrate and support students on the Autism Spectrum in the coming year. 
Let's build more inclusive communities together!
