About Our Grant Program
Our ability to raise funds is the single most important activity that determines our grant-giving for the year. Once we determine how much we can give each year, we review the following items when considering approval of a grant request:
Completion of grant application – The application must be completed in its entirety to be reviewed. Partially completed applications will be kept on file for one year and additional information may be submitted to make the application complete within that timeframe.
Amount of grant request – Typical grants awarded range between $100 – $5,000.
Household income – While we have not set an income level cap, incomes below $100,000 per year are reviewed first.
Type of treatment requested – Our mission is to fund effective treatments and needed assessments.
Numbers of family members with ASD diagnosis – Applications from families with multiple children with ASDs are reviewed first.
