Donation FAQs

Where do the funds raised from the Walk for Apraxia go?

The Walk for Apraxia is the signature fundraising event for Apraxia Kids. The funds raised support all of our programs and initiatives such as funding research, subsidizing educational programming like our National Conference and Bootcamp Intensive Training, developing and supporting our online community including our online support groups, working to develop localized outreach, and providing other resources like our webinar platform, article library, and free informational print materials. Funds raised through the Walk program account for about 60% of our budget. Without the Walks, we would not have the ability to accomplish all that we do.

Please work with your tax professional to determine what deductions you are eligible for. Receipts are emailed to the email address provided on the donation form at the time of donation. Canadian donors please note that at this time, donations are not tax-deductible in Canada.

How do I donate to a team or a walker?

If you wish for your donation to be credited towards a registered walker, you will need to place the donation directly on the participating individual or team’s fundraising page. First, find your local Walk by searching the map here. Once you are on your local Walk page, you may see your recipient or their team listed on the Top Fundraiser honor roll. If not, you can search for a participant or team in the pink box pictured below.
