Allies for Autism Foundation is a Canadian charitable granting foundation located in Calgary. They support individuals and families with members on the Autism spectrum indirectly by funding autism treatment organizations for “opportunities” that have the ability to enhance the experience of individuals in their care. The Foundation has been in operation for 18 years and has granted close to one million dollars to local Calgary autism endeavours comprising more than 110 grants and numerous agencies. Earlier in 2016 they gave us $5,000 to support our Autism Support Dog program and we thank them for this support!
