The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation For Autism
Category: Children, Youth & Families
DescriptionThe Foundation has three priorities: assist financially disadvantaged families who need assistance in caring for their children with autism spectrum disorder (through nonprofit autism organizations); fund education and advocacy for individuals with autism, and support therapeutic, recreational, and social skills programs. Family assistance grants support community organizations actively assisting children and adults with autism spectrum disorder and their families through direct family support, safety equipment, respite services, recreational programs, social skills training, transition services, employment, housing, and other opportunities that will enhance the quality of life for those affected. Education and advocacy grants support practical experiences for family members and professionals working in the field of autism, scholarships for students pursuing a degree in the field of special education, and more specifically developmental disabilities. Grants are awarded in Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Southern California (including San Diego, Los Angeles, and Orange counties) and national educational and advocacy programs and select Canadian Provinces including Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario. The Foundation seeks to fund organizations with administrative costs of less than 30 percent of the total expense budgets. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
