We donated $10,700 to Autism Speaks, a charity that is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of people with autism and their families. This is accomplished through advocacy and support, and by increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder, along with advancing research into the causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Recognizing the need for a powerful voice Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to help financially launch the organization.
Today, Autism Speaks is dedicated to advancing research into causes and better treatments for autism spectrum disorders and related conditions both through direct funding and collaboration.
The donation to Autism Speak was funded through trading profits realized by RagingBull Charitable Giving co-founder Jason Bond
