Who are we?

Autism Family Education Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Upstate, SC.  Our purpose is to provide educational opportunities for families with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and/or other developmental disabilities to increase their knowledge and competency in caring for a child or adolescent with a developmental disability and assist them in improving their quality of life.  Funds raised provide scholarships to cover some of the expense of these training courses, seminars, and conferences to families in need.

If you or someone you know may benefit from these scholarships, please see the application below.
