For your support of the 11th annual Concert for Autism

Donate Now!



Those of us behind the Concert for Autism are very thankful for another super fun and successful benefit!

We greatly appreciate all of those that attended, donated, sponsored, contributed, volunteered, and promoted the event.

A special thanks to our friends and families that gave countless hours of their time to help us organize and produce these two evenings of music and giving, and we especially want to thank all the bands and musicians that give the gift of their talent, without which we wouldn't have a concert.

If you were unable to attend but would still like to contribute, you can DONATE NOW using PayPal. All contributions will go to the Desert Autism Foundation.

We are already in the early planning stages for this year's 12th annual Concert for Autism. The dates are to be announced, but it will again take place in the fall at the beautiful Tack Room Tavern in Indio, CA.

The 2019 Concert for Autism will have a number of different sponsorship opportunities available. If you are a business and would like to know more about these opportunities, please contact us by email at or by calling (760) 702-4110. If you are interested in donating items or services for use as raffle or silent auction items, please contact us via the same email or phone.


The Concert for Autism is put on by a group of musicians who have personal connections to autism as fathers, mothers, family members and friends. Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to learn, communicate, and interact with others. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that autism now occurs in 1 out of every 68 children. The proceeds from this event are donated to the Desert Autism Foundation. This foundation is a local Coachella Valley organization that provides financial assistance to families with autistic children so they may afford vital therapies, programs, and activities. We have found this charity to offer valuable assistance for these families on a daily basis. Your donation to this charity is tax deductible.
