The BRAIN Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit. The founders of BRAIN envision a world where every child and adult on the autism spectrum is healthy, participates fully in education and employment, and has a better quality of life. It aims to catalyze research that results in evidence-based interventions for the disabilities associated with autism, and also results in better medical standard of care.

To accomplish this, it funds impactful research through #philanthropy and our network of partners in the venture, corporate, and grassroots community.
