Vacation Financial Assistance

Types of Financial Assistance
Vacation Assistance Program
Financial Assistance is awarded in varying amounts to immediate family members only, Parents/Guardian's, qualifying children/adults and their siblings. We evaluate each application individually to determine the amount of the Financial Assistance to be awarded and based on funding available at time of awarding. Families are awarded in the order in which families Register, see below.
Donate today to help families with special needs, who need financial assistance and the Autism on the Seas services, to turn their dream of going on vacation a reality. A special thank you to all who donate to AotSF, without whom this would not be possible.
Vacation Grants (through the "Sponsor a Family" Program)
This program allows individuals, families and businesses to donate to create a Vacation Grant, which will be awarded to families to receive the Autism on the Seas services. The families are chosen based on the demographic options that are selected by each donor, and the order in which families Register, see below.
