Why I Give
Toni Wisher, Mom, Ohio
“The reason that I support ATCA and The Son-Rise Program with donations is because my family is a Son-Rise family and we see first-hand what this program can do for a family living with Autism. Benefiting not just our Autistic son, but our entire family. There is no other form of Autism treatment like the Son-Rise Program in the world. We believe that the Autism Treatment Center of America is capable of leading us all to a solution to a growing population of special people and the “waiting lists” associated with popular alternative therapies. Parents have a right to know all of their options and that they don’t have to wait.”
Marcia Goldman, California
“Being a donor to ATCA and Son-Rise is my way of giving back and showing my gratitude. Almost 30 years ago I experienced my first Son-Rise program and it profoundly changed me both professionally and personally. There is not anything in life, my work with families, my personal decision making or my parenting, that hasn’t been positively influenced by the principals and attitudes of the Son-Rise Program. I am grateful every day that I found this transforming place and it is a privilege to be an annual donor as my way of saying Thank You!”
Jenn Jordon, Mom, Radio Host
“Autism can be a devastating diagnosis and the prognosis is overwhelming. The whole process of trying to “fix” our “broken” children can disable the entire family. What is so beautiful about the Son-Rise Program is it teaches the whole family how to love and accept their very special child and it opens doors to new understandings of not only our children but of ourselves. It is the only Autism treatment out there that does what is so amazing…it treats the entire family and teaches us how to be happy. It gives families hope which is what we need more than anything. By donating to ATCA, we not only help the children recover, we hold families together and support them on their journey to a life filled with love and joy.”

LETTERS OF THANKS…
“I am the mother of three children, all on the Autism Spectrum. Before I heard of the Son-Rise Program and the Option Institute, I was a desperate, angry and depressed person…. I was on Anti-depressants, sleeping multiple hours of the day, and for a period of time, using alcohol to run away from my pain.…”
-Kerry Rihtar, USA
“Two years ago, Antonio’s kindergarten teacher told us something was not quite right with our little boy. He was not socializing, he somersaulted all the time and hardly spoke at all. At the time I was working for a municipality close to Florence, Italy and basically I had nothing left after seeing to basic necessities.…”
“I know I will be able to give back by helping others, and that will be the top of my personal mountain! Thank you to everyone who donates! You are making a big difference in the world!…”
-Jeannie Reid, USA

When you donate crypto, everybody wins!
When you donate crypto directly to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, you receive a tax deduction for the value of the crypto and avoid the capital gains tax you would have paid if you sold the crypto before donating. The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes. When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation.
