Give Something Away Day is July 15th and PropStream will be launching its fundraiser for Autism Speaks. As part of our corporate responsibility program, PropStream has decided to raise funds virtually with our employees, partners, and customers with a matching program. For every $1 donated by the PropStream community, PropStream will match donations up to $10,000. In addition, PropStream will donate its own $10,000 after July 31st when the fundraiser ends.
Our goal is to raise a total of $30,000!
*Please note that Fundraise Your Way is hosted and operated by Autism Speaks - all funds go directly to the charity.
Through partnerships and collaborations, Autism Speaks is able to:
- Increase global understanding and acceptance of the Autism Spectrum
- Act as a catalyst for research breakthroughs
- Increase early childhood screening and timely intervention
- Improve transition to adulthood
- Ensuring lifetime access to reliable information and services
Autism Speaks is committed to its mission and more than eighty-five cents of every dollar funds research, advocacy, programs, and services for those impacted by Autsim.

1 in 54 children and 1 in 45 adults have Autism in the U.S.
Each requires a different type and amount of support. Some may live entirely independently, while others require 24/7 care. With so many children and adults in the U.S. on the spectrum, Autism touches every member of our community. From aunts and uncles to grandparents and neighbors, there is likely someone in your circle that may be on the spectrum, and you can help support their needs through this fundraiser.
What is Autism?
Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. Autism is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental influences and is often accompanied by medical issues, seizures, and sleep disorders.
Why is Autism a Spectrum?
There is not one type of Autism, but many subtypes, and because of this, diagnosis is provided as a spectrum. Often, those diagnosed with ASD will have their own unique strengths and challenges, which need to be supported by a range of customized therapies and supports for the individual and their caregivers.
