Joining and Growing Together

Through special events, Birch Family Services raises critical funding that allows us to go beyond meeting basic requirements, by offering exceptional opportunities and experiences in our programs. Donations raised at events directly benefit the people that we support in our schools, residences, and employment programs.  We thank all our patrons and stakeholders who join us for our events, virtually and in-person, to help us fulfill our mission. 

A look at our events

5K Race
Our 5K Forward: Fast Track to Empowerment race takes place in Central Park and brings together hundreds of staff members, families, sponsors, and individuals that we support to raise critical resources to empower people with autism and developmental disabilities to reach their fullest potential. 

Golf Classic 
Working closely with our corporate partner Lloyds Bank, we developed the Golf Classic. This new event is an exciting chance to meet our supporters on the links for a day of golf, games, and some friendly competitions. From amateurs to golf pros, we ask all to enjoy the day of play leading up to an evening of joining together to raise funds in support of our mission. 

The Soirée celebrates the accomplishments of the Birch Family Services community while honoring exceptional individuals and corporate partners who have been outstanding leaders, advocates, and innovators for our mission. During a night of celebration, we also help raise funds for residential, educational, employment and community services to individuals with autism and developmental disabilities.
