The Flutie Foundation has launched a fund to alleviate the many needs of the autism community during this crisis. We have raised over $100,000 in direct emergency cash assistance to several autism support centers throughout Massachusetts to immediately alleviate financial burdens families with children and adults with autism are facing. Please consider a gift to the COVID-19 Autism Relief Fund today!
The Doug Flutie Jr., Foundation for Autism is delighted to announce a new partnership with Spectrum for Hope (SFH). SFH will no longer function as a separate entity but instead will join forces with the Flutie Foundation. The Flutie Foundation will create a new program called “Spectrum for Hope” that will continue to grant money to support families who have multiple children with special needs. Together, the Flutie Foundation and Spectrum for Hope will expand programs and positively impact the autism community with their collaborative efforts. It will give the organizations increased leverage to help families with multiple children with special needs. Both organizations are excited for the future ahead and continuing to expand on their missions to improve the quality of life for families with children with autism and special needs and allow them to live life to the fullest.
