Through Steps of Hope Support Grants, the Autism Society of Minnesota awards thousands of dollars each year to proposals supporting individuals of all ages with autism. These grants are made possible because of the generous donations AuSM receives at our annual Steps of Hope fundraising walk. The goal if AuSM grants is to stimulate creativity, encourage successful programming and expand opportunitites for individuals living with ASD for many years to come.
AuSM is very excited to announce that since 2003, 254 grants, exceeding $207,900, have been awarded to support projects in our community. Funding for individuals, families, schools and adult facilities include vital therapy options for people of all ages; social skills classes; support groups for individuals, parents and siblings; increased home security and emergency preparedness; employment training and much, much more. The Steps of Hope grants are an important facet supporting AuSM's mission of enhancing the lives of those living with autism.
