Make a difference. Give to Eden.

Research on causes and cures for autism is vital and will make for a better future, but services for those with autism are essential today. Help Eden continue its work with children and adults who need support each and every day.

Why Give to Eden

The mission of the Eden Autism Foundation is to support Eden’s outstanding education, employment, residential and outreach services. Whether teaching a toddler fundamentals such as making eye contact; consulting to public schools; working with families to learn techniques employed in their child’s classroom or group home; or educating professionals like first responders about autism and its impact on their community members, Eden is an invaluable resource for families, educators, and others who care about individuals with autism.

The cost of educating and caring for children and adults with autism far exceeds the ability for any one entity to pay for it. A 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization, Eden engages its families, corporate and foundation friends, and other caring individuals to help provide a range of community-based services to meet the needs of our participants throughout the lifespan. The Foundation also plans and carries out advancement activities for Eden Autism. These activities build awareness of Eden’s outstanding programs and develop understanding and support among Eden’s multiple programs and constituencies.

On behalf of the Eden Community, thank you!
