DOUG FLUTIE JR FOUNDATION FOR AUTISM INC
December 15, 2011

The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism has allowed our organization to provide families with not only financial support in very difficult economic times but one step beyond that. We are able to provide our families with events that the entire family can attend. Dances, Pool Parties and Vacation Activities are the favorites. These events allow families to come together in a safe non-judgmental place where their kids can enjoy eachother and meet new friends. Parents can also find support and comfort through these events. We just could not do this without the incredible support of the Flutie Foundation. Thank you -so much on behalf of all our families at the Autism Alliance of MetroWest.

DOUG FLUTIE JR FOUNDATION FOR AUTISM INC
December 14, 2010



Our experience with the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism Inc. has been nothing but terrific for the past 12 years. Since the early days, the foundation has supported us in so many ways. Long before we were recognized by the state as one of its autism support centers the Flutie Foundation supported our mission and goals to helping folks with autism.

Once established, the foundation continued to support special projects like such as our Sunday Open Gym, our educational videos and our favorite event Kite Day. For the past 10 years, the Flutie Foundation has joined forces with us to provide our community with an autism awareness day that brings almost 1000 people to Bose Mountain in Framingham to learn more about autism while enjoying a free, fun, family event. This event would not be possible without the support of the Flutie Foundation.

They have a committed staff, headed up by Lisa Borges, executive director and Chris Chirco, Director of Programming. Lisa and Chris are extremely accessible and always willing to help when they can.

We feel exceedingly fortunate to have been supported by the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism for the past 12 years.
