In 2020 Spring Forward for Autism is partnering with The Parker Foundation for Autism and Child Development for this special fundraising event.  The Parker Foundation was established in 2015 by Ted and Melissa Parker and provides a community of understanding and support to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and related disabilities and their families.

We invite you to showcase your business and your commitment to our community by supporting our annual event. Your involvement is sincerely appreciated and will help bring much needed support and awareness to our Brevard County Autism Community. This event directly benefits our Private Family Support Grants and Community Outreach Programs that include vocational trainings to give our children a chance to explore new skills.

About SFFA and Parker Foundation Collaborative:

SFFA and The Parker Foundation have successfully partnered on multiple outreach programs and community events since 2016 that provide for the total family needs of the ASD child in Brevard. The number of families and level of impact grows significantly when we collaborate, whether it is hosting sold-out Super Skate for Super Kids events, Sensory Santa holiday socials, Speak Through Sports tennis play days, joint autism safety initiatives, bullying prevention programs and more. Combining the advocacy efforts, resource access and fundraising savvy of SFFA with the established breadth and success of Parker Foundation programs has proven to be a winning combination for uniting the larger community, maximizing donor impact and most importantly meeting the global needs of the family affected by autism. Our shared vision includes leveraging future opportunities to galvanize our combined resources to positively impact the growing numbers of families affected by autism in Brevard, with emphasis on vocational training skills and workforce development.

  • Silent Auction: Contribute an item(s) or service(s) that will be on display for auction
