Review for Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc, Schererville, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As President/CEO of Autism Pensacola, I have been blessed to witness the impact on the lives of those with autism in our area that was a direct result from the generosity of Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation. We have been blessed to be part of the Holiday Gift Card program for several years and I have seen many happy tears and heard many parents proclaim how their Holiday has been saved by this gift. In addition, for the past 4 years, ASDF has supported our nationally acclaimed Summer Learning Lab(camp) that not only gives kids a great time but teaches them and their teachers so much. The families ASDF supports are our most needy and they are so grateful every summer to have this life changing experience because of ASDF. I am so grateful and admire ASDF so much. Thank you for making a difference in Pensacola Florida!

Review for Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc, Schererville, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first heard of ASDF when someone questioned me about their fundraising program. I then learned from the website that they fund camps for children with autism. We applied for and receivedover $10,000 to use to fund needy campers at our summer learning lab camp in Penascola, FL. They have also enabled us to support two needy families with basic funds for housing during a period of critical need. Additionally, ASDF has provided funds to support families in need at Christmas through our local organization. I am aware that they fund swimming programs, and therapies as well as camps. We are very grateful for the work of ASDF.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Our area is one of the poorest in Florida. The families ASDF allowed us to support would not have been able to be a part of our summer camp without these funds. The two families helped with basic needs were at their wits end about how to continue when we were able to step in and use ASDF funds to make a difference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get more awareness of the good work they do. The high fundraising cost is because they use a professional fundraiser to make this happen. I think with time, this cost will go down.
