I volunteered to distribute a small mailing about this organization in my neighborhood. Another professional fundraising organization - InfoCision
Management Corp. - sent me the mailing package. One of the items in the mailing was a card that identified the states that required notification
to potential donors about the financial results related to the charity and the professional fundraiser associated with it. On the Vermont attorney general's site I found very disturbing information about this particular professional fundraiser. In many cases - for many well known charitable organizations - this fundraiser returned to the charity less than 50% of the money that individuals had donated. I have decided not to proceed with the solicitations to my neighbors.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

urge it to not use its current Professional Fundraiser.

I volunteered to ask my neighbors to donate to the ASDF when I was called (on the phone) by one of their reps. Before sending out the envelopes I "goggled" some info. From State of WA documents on ASDF and their contracted fund-raising companies. From the data provided to the State of WA my calculations indicate that out of every dollar about 9 to 17 cents goes to the charity. Looking at the ASDF web site does not indicate what the final funds are used for.

Ways to make it better...

I volunteered to distribute campaign materials on my street. As a precautionary measure, I researched the "Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation" in various online charity rating web sites. I found several autism RELATED organizations. But of the 4-5 sites I searched, your site (greatnonprofits.org) is the only one with any information on the specific group named "Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation". On your page, the mailing address is shown as Tulalip WA; the return envelopes provided to me show a PO Box in Hagerstown MD. Illegal? No. Unusual? I don't know. Food for thought? Yes, I believe so.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Not a question I can answer; I have not experienced any "results".
