Support Pathfinders

Why should you donate to Pathfinders for Autism?

Autism affects 1 in every 68 children, 1 in 42 boys, and is the fastest-growing developmental disorder in the country. Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average, and there is no cure.

Pathfinders for Autism is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with autism and the people who care for them. We help people with day-to-day challenges, and are here for them from the very first moment that they find out their child has autism, all the way through the lifespan. We accomplish this through a variety of resources, programs, and services, all of which are offered FREE of charge.

Last year alone, we directly assisted over 18,000 individuals. We are able to conduct this critical work throughout Maryland thanks to the generosity of private contributions - from individuals, corporations, and foundations like you!

Pathfinders for Autism is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (Tax ID #52-2226573) and all donations are tax-deductible.
