Bring hope to a family living with autism this Giving Tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday a global day of giving, including Canada, when citizens, charities and businesses come together to celebrate the work being done by charities and non-profits. We are asking you today to participate in Giving Tuesday by making a gift to ISAND.

Whether Giving Tuesday is the end of your 2020 giving or the start of your 2021 giving year, any contribution that you provide to ISAND will have a significant impact on the lives of people who are looking for HOPE. Donations received prior to December 31, 2020 will result in a 2020 tax receipt for the donor.

ISAND’s impact doesn’t stop at providing integrated and highly successful therapy to people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ISAND also provides HOPE to families for a brighter future as their loved one gains new skills and develops their abilities.

We rely on the generosity of donors to help support the programs and services that ISAND provides. We are asking today that you join us in supporting families who are looking for help and HOPE.

Please donate today.

The second annual Courts and Cocktails Gala

Hosts Robyn and Dave Way welcomed more than 150 guests to the second annual Courts and Cocktails Gala on November 1, 2019 at the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club in support of ISAND, Autism Dog Services and Special Olympics. Guests enjoyed an evening of tennis, dancing to the music of “Fool Hearts”, cocktails, wine tasting, silent auction and mingling.

We would like to sincerely thank Robyn, Dave, the rest of the organizers and sponsors for putting on this event. ISAND is fortunate to receive $30,000 from the night to help support our services and programs.
