Background Swoosh Light

The SHINE BRIGHT Fundraising Campaign will shine a light on this year’s V.V. Anderson Community Service Award Honorees, Above & Beyond Award Winner, Anderson Team Members, and the students and adults we serve! Through out the month of November we will share series of impactful videos and images designed to shine the light on those who have the greatest impact on the individuals we serve that ensure they live a life of quality will bring our message to you via social media and email. We urge you to watch out for these as they tell an incredibly important story-the story of why Anderson Center for Autism's mission must continue, and it stars some of your favorite Team Members, families, students and adults.   

Anderson Foundation for Autism will be honoring John Maserjian and Paul Colbert of Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation in recognition of their service on the Anderson Center and Anderson Foundation for Autism Boards of Trustees with the V.V. Anderson Community Service Award.  Also, being honored is this year's Above & Beyond Award Winner, Anderson Team Member, Briana Booker.  

Our goal is to raise $200,000! Your generosity will help us reach this goal, and helps us recruit and retain the highest quality team members and provide the best services available to individuals on the autism spectrum.
