About Campaignends 31 Mar 2019, 11:59 PM
For more than two decades, the Association has been a front-runner in advocating for awareness and understanding of autism, and promotion of community involvement and support for individuals with autism as well as their families.
However, as its students and adult clients grow older, the Association is challenged to meet the rising costs of continued education and skills training to maximise its beneficiaries' potential.
Through the Eden Endowment Fund, future gifts received by the Association will be protected as the Fund generates interest and returns from some low-risk investment projects which are approved by the Board of Management, where they will be channelled to specific purposes. This is one of the goals of the Eden Endowment Fund - to help keep life-long learning affordable for those who need it the most.
