• How You Can Help!  

    Donate and make a difference!

    While we do receive some funding from tuitions, those rates are set for us, making fund development a critical aspect of our ability to run the important programs that our students need and deserve. Development efforts include fundraising events, grant requests, sponsorships, and donations from individuals, groups, and businesses, including matching grant programs. Each contribution makes a difference that lasts forever in the lives of our students and families.

    Below you will find our Wish List for in kind donations, but please consider clicking this DONATE button to contribute monetarily. Every cent is really felt here, with all that we do, and all that we dream of doing as a school teaching and providing ABA services to a population with a huge need. Your help is needed and very much appreciated.

    Monetary donations to Crossroads Center for Children are very much needed. Financial donors help sustain critical early intervention and educational programs for children, some as young as 18 months, who are challenged by autism and other developmental disabilities.  Your generous support allows our highly trained teachers to provide the individualized attention each child needs to succeed in school, in their homes and community, and in their adult life.

    Your gift is Tax Deductible. Since Crossroads Center for Children is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law.

    People frequently ask how they can help us. One way that our community has helped us greatly is by thinking of us when they have items that they no longer need, but are still useful. We can’t take everything here, but our Wish List can provide information about what is needed currently. When you do have items which you no longer need – due to cleaning out, downsizing, outgrowing, etc. – please consider donating to Crossroads Center for Children!  These items are considered “In Kind” and can certainly be helpful to our program. Items should be in safe condition, but can be previously used!       

    Please be sure to contact us first before dropping off items to ensure that we are able to receive your donation when you arrive. Call (518) 280-0083 (ext. 126)  or email 

    We are not able to accept stuffed animals, thanks!

    If you want to donate something that’s not on our Wish List, please contact to find out if we can use it or not. Thank you so much for your contribution.
