Help Us AchieveOur Vision
Every day, our funding partners are changing lives in the autism community through donations and sponsorships. These partnerships allow GCA to offer new and expanded programming and subsidize program fees to ensure that all children, youth and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder have access to the services that will help them thrive.
These long-time supporters have helped GCA to deliver high-quality programming to our clients, year after year.
The Langar Foundation
This Bursary Program has allowed GCA to provide financial assistance for some of the most vulnerable adults in the autism community, through the COVID- 19 pandemic and beyond, by prioritizing high needs adults who could not otherwise afford in- center programming.
When the pandemic forced GCA to close our Centre, these funders committed to supporting the GCA community and helped us to develop and implement remote programming.
