One thing is quite clear to us - we simply could not achieve all that we do without the thoughtfulness and generosity of our supporters for which we are immensely grateful.
As with most charities Peterhouse does rely on the support of those people and organisations who believe in us and support us. That support comes in many guises and includes the giving of skills and expertise; time; gifts in kind; money or simply words of encouragement, which always spur us on. Your support is crucial to our work in whatever way you choose to give it.
The rewards for supporting us in any way are huge in terms of seeing our pupils achieving new skills, gaining confidence and self esteem and moving towards reaching their true potential as successful people with autism.
Fundraising is vital to Peterhouse so that we may continue providing the very best services for young people with autism and their families.
Lots of people support us in many ways from volunteering to bag pack at a local supermarket to jumping out of airplanes! Whatever you are planning to do we can help, please contact the school office or the Autism Initiatives Fundraising Team: firstname.lastname@example.org

We would be delighted to receive any unwanted shares in any quantity – large or small. Giving in this way means that you can support us without making a dent in your bank balance and you could even make substantial savings on your Income Tax too. Please contact the Autism Initiatives Fundraising team if you would like further information: liz.Thornber@autisminitiatives.org .
Donations from corporate organisations and their employees are hugely important to us. We aim to work in partnership with companies that help us, wherever possible supporting any activities with branded merchandise, PR and staff visits to services as appropriate.
A great way of supporting us is by adopting Peterhouse as your chosen charity of the year. This gives us the opportunity to establish a real partnership with the company which results in the best possible feel good factor for staff and positive PR for the company involved. There are a huge number of ways we can work in partnership – Payroll Giving, match funding, sponsorship or a straight forward donation. Please contact the school office or the Autism Initiatives Fundraising Team (email@example.com) to discuss how we can work together.
Grants from Charitable Trusts and Foundations have been, and continue to be, enormously important to us. They can vary in size from £500 to £100,000 and can be a one off grant or long-term support over a period of years. We have also received grants from Local Authorities; government funds and Lottery bodies.
