Cure Autism Now recently launched the Hope for Our Children campaign with a goal of raising $25 million in leadership gifts and pledges within the next four years. Research has yielded many significant discoveries over the past decade. Scientists are telling us that it is only a matter of time and investment until the specific causes, biomedical treatments and—ultimately—a cure for autism can be identified.
The goal of this campaign is to accelerate research at this critical phase and lead us to a cure soon as possible. We are pleased to report that more than $3 million in leadership gifts has already been received to help launch this important campaign.
The Hope for Our Children campaign is designed to support our flagship programs and initiatives that facilitate collaboration and progress in the scientific community and target the most promising areas of research. Cure Autism Now programs include the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE), the Autism Treatment Network (ATN), Clinical Trials Network (CTN), Internet System for Assessing Autistic Children (ISAAC) and our Autism Research Summit Meetings. Initiatives include Biomarker, Brain Development, Environmental Factors, Genomics, Innovative Technology for Autism (ITA) and Neural Retraining.
You can make an investment in the lives of millions and help realize our vision of finding a cure for autism with your leadership gift in support of the Hope for Our Children campaign. Join us and other dedicated people around the country. Turn this vision into a reality with your pledge today.
