GreatNonprofits 2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit BadgeGreatNonprofits has designated OAR as a “top-rated” nonprofit every year since the award was introduced 11 years ago. With your help, we can make it 12 years in a row! If OAR has made a positive impact on your experience as a member of the autism community, review OAR on the GreatNonprofits website.

If OAR receives 10 new reviews by October 31, 2021, we will be named a top-rated charity for the twelfth year in a row. We would love to have your review on the GreatNonprofits website and your help with spreading the word to friends or colleagues. Reviews can be as brief as a few sentences or as long as a few paragraphs, and anyone can submit a review. Being a top-rated nonprofit greatly helps OAR both in fundraising efforts and in reaching a wider audience of families, educators, and self-advocates.

In 2020, a volunteer wrote, “OAR was the first organization to give my family hope for the future after my cousin was diagnosed with autism. More than 20 years later, we are proud to work as partners with OAR, not only because of their outstanding work, but because of their incredible staff! Every single person I have ever had the pleasure of working with at OAR is genuine, kind, hard-working, and extremely bright. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this organization!”

GreatNonprofits describes itself as “the leading platform for community-sourced stories about nonprofits.”  Many families, educators, and autism professionals discover OAR’s resources through this website, so it is important that we elevate our presence on it, which will make it easier for people to access our quality evidence-based information and resources.

In a 2020 review, a self-advocate wrote, “OAR is truly dedicated to assisting autistic people. Their resources, research, and fundraising efforts are relevant for autistic people and aim to support and empower us. I’ve had a rewarding experience engaging with this organization, and I encourage other autistic adults to reach out to them too.”

In another 2020 review, a parent shared, “I was so relieved once I found Organization for Autism Research’s free resources and list of COVID resources. OAR’s resources helped get my family and I through the toughest of times. I cannot express in words how grateful we are for Organization for Autism Research and all that they do.”
