Fundraising Events and Activities

  • Imagine the help you’ll be providing when you make a donation or support an event that benefits Crossroads Center for Children. There are so many burdens to lighten in the world that exists for children with developmental disabilities, particularly autism. Our work is critical; your help is needed. Supporting an event to benefit Crossroads directly helps our students and their families.

  • You can help us raise the funding needed to provide essential services!


    Fundraising is absolutely critical to our MISSION, allowing us of to deliver excellent and intensely individualized services to our very special students. Our fundraising committee oversees a variety of efforts across the year - some are events, some are sales-oriented, and others are accounts that you can register for and contribute to Crossroads every time you shop. 
    • We hope that you will join us for one or all of our fundraising EVENTS this year! 
    • Do an event FOR us!  Members of our community often wish to do a fundraiser on their own for Crossroads Center for Children, and this help is also appreciated. To protect the organization, anyone wishing to solicit funds in Crossroads Center for Children's name must acquire written permission prior to the beginning of any fundraising activities. This includes any third party not directly affiliated with Crossroads. If you are interested in helping in this way,  please reach out to us at and we will provide you with a fundraiser application form.

    Thank you for your support! Because of you, we are able to serve approximately 120 students each year in our school and clinic, from many counties and school districts.


  • These FUNDRAISERS are ALWAYS working for us!

       Bottles and Cans can be dropped off at the school or at Creating Change Redemption Center/ 309 Saratoga Rd. Glenville 

    or Green Bottle Redemption Center 1809 Altamont Ave. Rotterdam to help us sustain our curricular fund. We have accounts at both sites, so all you do is tell them your bottles and cans are for Crossroads Center for Children. Be sure you specify our full name, as there are other organizations with similar names. We also have a CLYNK account with Hannaford.  Collection bags are available at our front desk - you fill it and return it to your nearby Hannaford store and the money goes into our account.
