Twin Cities Autism Foundation offers scholarship opportunities

TwinCitiesAutismFndtnlogoAuSM is pleased to partner with Twin Cities Autism Foundation, Inc., an organization that provides financial aid to help families affected by autism gain access to resources. As part of the partnership, Twin Cities Autism Foundation, Inc. will offer scholarships to families and individuals who apply for financial support for AuSM’s education programming, including social skills classes and AuSM summer camps.

“Twin Cities Autism Foundation, Inc. is a natural partner for AuSM and will provide great opportunities for our autism community,” Dawn Brasch, AuSM's Senior Director of Finance and Operations, said. “The foundation is a strong advocate for organizations that help families and individuals with autism, and we appreciate their dedication to providing funding that makes resources available to those who may not otherwise have access."

Inspired by their son with autism and motivated to ensure that all families and individuals have resources needed for growth, Laura and Kent Olson established Twin Cities Autism Foundation, Inc. in 2015.
