At Els for Autism, we diligently prioritize how we spend fundraising dollars and are continually trying to generate a game-changing environment for our clients and students. As the year ends and we move into the holiday season, the Foundation staff has collected a Holiday Wish List of items currently not funded. Your donation will go directly to the Wish List item you select.
