Tribute Giving

A tribute donation is a meaningful way to recognize a special individual in your life, or honor the memory of a loved one. Your contribution will have a positive impact on the life of an individual living with autism.

To acknowledge the occasion, the Flutie Foundation will send a personalized tribute card to the person you've indicated notifying them of your thoughtful donation. Additionally, for any tribute gift of a $250 or more, the Flutie Foundation will also send the person you've indicated an 8x10 Doug Flutie photo.

Gifts in Memory

Corporate Giving

Each year, companies of all sizes and sectors show their support for children and families affected by autism through contributions to the Flutie Foundation. These contributions are made in a variety of ways but together they allow the Foundation to provide help to over 4,000 families each year. It also has the added benefit of helping companies achieve greater commercial success by enriching the value of corporate brands; increasing customer loyalty; and boosting staff morale.

Join the MVP Society

Established in 2013, The MVP Society recognizes individuals and couples who make single or cumulative gifts of $500 or more every year to The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism. Participation is renewable annually. In appreciation of members’ generosity and dedication, we have established sub-societies and meaningful benefits.
