At present, Puzzles Bakery & Cafe is simply an idea.
Your donation of "seed money" will help grow this idea into a reality.
What The Autism Initiative is raising money for right now:
• Cost to file paperwork with the IRS to obtain 501(c)(3) status: $850
• Cost to consult a lawyer, accountant, and other professionals as needed: $1,500
• Cost to develop a logo for The Autism Initiative: $150
What The Autism Initiative has already accomplished with your generous donations:
✓ Filed Articles of Incorporation in New York State: $75
✓ Designed and are currently hosting our website with Squarespace for two years: $325
✓ Developed a logo for Puzzles Bakery & Cafe: $150
✓ Purchased a Kitchenaid Professional 600 stand mixer: $300
✓ Created a series of puzzle-shaped cookies, brownies, and other treats!
The Autism Initiative just needs a little money to get started-- once we become a registered 501(c)(3), we'll be able to apply for grants and receive tax-deductible donations.
