Fund a Community Grant

Autism Speaks Family Services is dedicated to providing information and resources to improve the outcomes of children, adolescents and adults living with autism.

Major Gift donors can direct their gift towards our Family Services Community Grants program. These grants provide funding to organizations to increase services for those affected by autism as well as to increase the field of service providers:

There are three areas of focus:

  • Education
  • Recreation and Community Activities
  • Young Adult and Adult Services

Community grants range from $5,000 to $25,000. All of the Family Services Community Grants projects are featured on the Autism Speaks website.  The steps that are put in place for each grant as well as the outcomes are included so the program can be replicated by others.  To date we have funded 141 proposals for almost $3 million.

For more information on directing your major gift towards this program please contact Melissa Halbridge, National Director of Major Giving at (646) 385-8590 or
