Get Involved with Imagine A Way
Share |

Imagine A Way would not be able to support dozens of families affected by autism annually without the support of our generous community. There are many ways to get involved with IAW. We look forward to working with you! For more information on getting involved, contact

Imagine A Way hosts events every year. Our major fundraisers are:
  • Shoot for the Stars Clay Shoot
  • Reach for the Stars Gala
  • Family events throughout the year

We welcome sponsorships for all events with customizable benefits for your organization. Please reach out to for more information.

Join in a year-long partnership with an IAW Family: 

The average Imagine A Way family attends therapy that costs IAW $11,000 annually. Though, therapy costs range from $5,000 to $50,000. By pledging to adopt a family for a year, you will receive personal messages and updates from IAW and the families you are supporting. This way you can follow along in their journey. And, more importantly, you will be changing a child’s life.

Learn More
Imagine A Way has many volunteer opportunities throughout the year:
  • Day-of Event Volunteers. Join us at the Clay Shoot, Gala and family events as an event volunteer. Duties range from set-up, registration support, auction support, game volunteers, clean-up and more.
  • Auction Committee. Support IAW by reaching out to potential auction supporters for both the Gala and Clay Shoot. After initial training, volunteers can work remotely reaching out to potential auction supporters, picking up auction items around town, and putting together auction baskets.
  • Skilled Volunteers. Have a special skill? Volunteer your time in graphic design, photography, videography, fundraising, marketing, data entry, etc.

What We Provide

Depending on the unique needs of the child, IAW will help fund some or all of the proven therapies prescribed for the child, including but not limited to:

Autism treatment programs are expensive. Even with insurance coverage, copays and out-of-pocket expenses can be overwhelming.

Imagine A Way stands in the gap to support the families of children with autism who are in need of, but cannot afford, critical therapeutic services.
