Step 2 : Finance your Start-Up

Money should not be an obstacle to helping our children !!! We have the following options to make the Son-Rise Program Start-Up 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 are received together (with deposits)

  • participants of the workshops and presentations by Raun K. Kaufman in France in March 2018

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

Crowdfunding

To help finance your Start-Up, 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 as the money collected will be transferred directly to OptimAutisme and will be deducted from your tuition for the Start-Up. 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 tuition for your Start-Up by credit card with HelloAsso Tickets (see above) you can create your crowdfunding campagne ("collecte") after you pay (instructions in French).
  • If you have chosen another method of payment, you can create your crowdfunding campagne at HelloAsso Financer SRP Start-Up. 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. 

Financial assistance

We are still fundraising to be able to give financial assistance to the maximum number of people (if you can help us to raise more funds, please contact us ).

 

Step 3 : Pay your tuition

We accept a number of payment methods, with the possibility to pay in multiple installments :

Combining payment methods

  • if you wish, you may use different payment methods for different installments, eg. bank transfer for the deposit and HelloAsso for the rest. 

 

Step 4 : Transport and Accommodation

Transport

  • Please arrive in Paris in the evening of 3 May 2018 at the latest, as registration starts at 8:30 a.m. on 4 May 2018. Late arrivals are strongly discouraged so that you can get the most our of the week, and to not disturb the other partipants.
  • To get from Paris airports to central Paris, the following methods of transport are available :
    • taxis, uber
    • public transport : bus, train. You can buy a 1 day "Paris Visite" zone 1-5 pass to take any public transport from the airport (CDG or Orly) into Paris for 24,50€, available at the Tourist Information counter at the airports. You can use the pass in and around Paris all day.
  • The location and transport to the location will be published soon.
  • If you plan to use public transport throughout the week to get to and from the Start-Up, we recommended that you buy a 5-day "Paris Visite" travel pass, available at the Tourist Information counter at the airports and major train stations, or in Metro stations. This travel pass allows unlimited travel on public transport in the chosen zone, which depends on where you are staying (Zone 1-3 for central Paris).

Accommodation

  • We plan to reserve places in simple youth hostel style accommodation in Paris (very basic and inexpensive). Details will be published soon.
  • If you do not wish to stay at youth hostel style accommodation, we suggest that you use the usual search engines or Air BnB to find your accommodation. You can contact other participants by posting on the OptimAutisme FaceBook page to organize share accommodation or car-pooling. The Mairie is easily accessible via public transport so you can stay in the central and western areas of Paris.
