Since the fund’s inception, 2001, the Earthly Angels Autism Fund of the Luzerne Foundation has donated in excess of $175,000 to local non-profit organizations to benefit local autistic individuals!
MISSION: The Earthly Angels Autism Fund of the Luzerne Foundation is dedicated to helping local children afflicted with autism. Our mission is to proactively increase autism awareness; provide funding to qualified nonprofit organizations for autistic services, support programs and education; and to bring hope to those families who deal with the hardships of this disorder.
Our purpose is to find ways to help the lives of local autistic children and their families. Having a child diagnosed as autistic enables us to provide a unique perspective and allows us to reach out to many local families in a knowing and caring way.
An advisory committee oversees all activities of the Fund and participates in the entire decision making process. The purpose of the advisory committee is to gather input from a variety of people. To have multiple individuals involved in making decisions has its advantages and ultimately will be most beneficial.
