Step 2 : Finance your "New Frontiers" program

Money should not be an obstacle to helping our children !!! We offer the following possibilities to make the Son-Rise Program New Frontiers program as accessible as possible :

Discounts of 200€

We offer discounts of 200€ in the following cases  :

  • group registrations : 200€ discount for each participant when two or more registrations with deposits are received together

  • participants of Raun K. Kaufman's and/or Kate Wilde's lectures in France in September 2018 : eligible for discount if the registration with deposit is received within 15 days of the conference

  • volunteers in a current Son-Rise Program (sent by a parent)

Crowdfunding

To help finance your New Frontiers program, we encourage you to ask your contacts to make donations either directly to you or through crowdfunding.

If you have contacts in France, we suggest you use our partner HelloAsso to manage your crowdfunding campaign, as the money collected is transferred directly to Optim'Autisme and will be deducted from your New Frontiers tuition. Donors will receive a tax receipt allowing them to deduct the amount of their donation from their taxes, which might encourage them to give more . In France, a donation of 30 € (for an individual) costs only 10,20 € after deduction, and a donation of 100 € (for a company) costs only 40 € after deduction.

  • If you have chosen to pay your New Frontiers tuition by credit card with HelloAsso Tickets (see below) you can create your crowdfunding campagne ("collecte") after you pay (instructions in French).
  • If you have chosen another payment method, you can create your crowdfunding campagne at HelloAsso Financer les Formations SRP. Scroll down, click on "Lancer ma collecte" and following the instructions (in French).

Send the link to all your contacts and ask them to contribute to help you finance your Start-Up. 

Conditions for using Optim'Autisme's HelloAsso crowdfunding campaigns :

  • 1% of the total amount collected will be retained by Optim'Autisme as a contribution to the association. This money will be used either for the organisation of the traing courses, or to give financial aid to those whose crowdfunding campaigns did not raise enough funds.
  • Money collected in your HelloAsso crowdfunding campaigne can be used to finance your Son-Rise Program training course as well as your transport to Paris, and your accommodation (reimbursement upon presentation of receipts)
  • Any money collected above this total goes to Optim'Autisme.
  • Your contacts are in France. People outside France cannot contribute to HelloAsso crowdfunding campaigns. Please use another crowdfunding platform for your contacts outisde France, eg. Leechi, CotizUp, etc.

and is acessible using public transport:
