PEAT is a local NI charity. We must raise funds to keep the services of the charity in operation and to support as many people with autism as we can.
PEAT is not in a position to organise larger fundraising events.Â We therefore rely on our member families for fundraising in their local communities, with our support.
Organise an event for PEAT and fundraise in your own way.Â We can help you get started and guide you along with way as well as providing t-shirts, collection boxes or buckets, stickers and sponsorship forms, etc.
We can disseminate your event among our member families and promote it on our website and social networking.
Organising a fundraising event for PEAT will:
Plan your own amazing day and make a real difference.Â Here are someÂ fundraising ideas to help get you started:
Ceate your own fundraising page onÂ Justgiving to support your event and make fundraising and donations to your event easy!

2. Make a purchase
You click from the easyfundraising website through to Amazon to make your purchase. The price of the book is exactly the same as if you'd visited Amazon directly.
3. Get a donation
After you have bought your book, Amazon will make a donation to your cause as a thank you for shopping with them. It costs you nothing!
So whether youâ€™re doing your weekly online shop at Tesco, Sainsburys or Asda or shopping for gifts etc, go through easyfundraising first to get an online donation for PEAT at no extra cost to you.Add an easyfundraising page to our website and show logos and links â€“ available on the easyfundraising website.
EbayÂ Just about everybody knows about eBay. Every day, millions of people log on to browse through auctions in search of bargains.
Just open up eBay, and click on the "Giving Works" link on the left-hand side of the home page.
Start selling for PEAT.Â
How it works.
List any item and donate between 10-100% of the proceeds to PEAT.
After the item sells, PayPal Giving Fund, eBay's nonprofit partner, collects your donated proceeds and eBay then credits your selling fees proportional to the amount donated.
PayPal Giving Fund processes the donation and distributes it to PEAT.
If you're looking for a way to unite your company behind a great cause, why not choose us as your next charity of the year?
A lot has been done over the last 10 years to increase awareness of autism so that the disability is recognised however much still needs to be done to raise awareness of how autism affects a person and their families throughout their lifespan. We also need to raise awareness about proven approaches to support the diagnosed individual helping them to reach their full potential.
Adopting PEAT as your charity partner will allow much dissemination about autism, the challenges and struggles that autism brings as well the best way to support an individual with autism.
A partnership with PEAT will help us strengthen and develop core services as well as expanding services to meet the demand of the ever increasing prevalence of autism.
Upon choosing us as your charity partner, we will work with you to agree a fundraising target and help you choose a tangible funding project that will resonate with both your employees and customers.

There’s a whole heap of fundraising ideas for schools that can help. You can include staff, pupils and even parents!
Fundraising by students is a regular activity in most schools. The reasons are obvious. Fundraising involves fun activities that help others yet fundraising is not always as educational as it could be.

Let us know if you would like to team up with our charity for your school’s fundraising and we will let you know why you should support PEAT. Contact us.

Host your own fundraising dinner party for PEAT.
What does it involve?
Whether it's an intimate dinner party at home for a few close family and friends or a dinner for the members of your local golf club, we'd like you to arrange your own evening and ask your guests to each make a donation in exchange for some wonderful food and great company! Every penny your dinner party raises will help PEAT in continuing to provide services to families across Northern Ireland living with autism.
Who receives the donations?
Every penny raised from each 'Eat for PEAT' dinner party will go directly to support family services.
PEAT will provide invite sheets, menu sheets and donation envelopes.
You can even set up your own Just Giving fundraising page so that those who cannot make your dinner party can still make online donations to support autism.
