Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health

Mission: Capital Keys Autism Families, Inc. (goldkeys-autism.org) Mission: Our mission is to offer Autism supporters an opportunity to surprise an Autistic child with a gift from Amazon. Founded by Anthony Tinervia Jr., an Autistic adult who often felt isolated and alone growing up, our organization has created a membership club whereby members can submit an Autistic child’s name to be entered in a weekly drawing for a gift to be mailed to them. Our overall goal is to bring joy. Our future mission is to have supporters pick a birthday child and send a donation to that child for us to send an Amazon gift to. Check https://goldkeys-autism.org/autism-birthday-list Vision: We envision that our initiative will create increased awareness of the impact that Autism has on a child’s confidence and self-esteem; that surprise packages will be delivered to hundreds of Autistic children; and that because of this simple gesture, Autistic children will realize that they are valued and that there are individuals who care deeply about their well-being.

Results: New nonprofit but need at least $25 per birthday member to buy Amazon gifts.

Target demographics: MAKE LIFE EASIER FOR AUTISM FAMILIES BY ACCEPTING THEM TO GET BIRTHDAY GIFTS PLUS AMAZON GIFTS

Direct beneficiaries per year: 330 members

Geographic areas served: United States

Programs: Autism Birthday Club Facebook Live Contest

Capital Keys Autism Familes, Inc. is a wonderful non profit agency dedicated to familes with autism. Tony, also the maker of Keys to the Capitals board game has went above and beyond to help bring families together to support and accept each other and form a support group where we can talk and share experiences. And he makes it fun with all the giveaways and the Autism Birthday Club bringing Acceptance and happiness to those with autism. Tony’s board game Keys to the Capitals is great for bringing familes to the table for family game time and making memories. My family enjoys the game, the Birthday Club, the giveaways, the support, Acceptance and friends. Keep up the great work, Tony! We appreciate you!

I want to say that this organization is awesome. It gives care takers the opportunity to give their child a gift that maybe they could not have. It also helps the care takers to realize that they aren't alone as we can communicate with each other.what an awesome job you do helping children as well as raising the awareness of autism.
