Imagine never hearing your son or daughter speak. Not hearing "I love you, mom" or "Hi, daddy." For many families, that is a potential reality when their child receives a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder or another developmental disability.

As a non-profit organization, Touro is committed to keeping rates low and we accept many insurance providers.  However, many children need multiple therapies many times per week to reach their full potential.  This can be financially burdensome to families even with two incomes and insurance coverage.

We created a Scholarship Grant Fund for families who either cannot afford services, have high co-pays, or need a therapy that is not covered by insurance. Donations to this Grant Fund make a significant difference to many families at the Center.

Your tax-deductible gift will support families for whom treatment costs are prohibitive.  Help other parents hear their child say I love you or run and give them a hug.

Our puzzle donor wall recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more to the Grant Fund.  Add your name to this wall of support.


Naming Opportunities

We have a limited number of naming opportunities available. These naming opportunities give donors a way to make a powerful and enduring impact for our children and their families, right now and years down the line, transforming their lives forever. You just might find that it changes you, too. Create your own life-changing legacy today – donate now.


Event Donations

The Pierce Autism Center at Touro hosts several events, such as Light It Up Blue and The Season of Lights, where monetary donations or in-kind gifts such as basketball jerseys, games, and gift cards would be helpful.


Games, Toys, and Supplies

The center utilizes a variety of games, toys, art supplies, and other materials during therapy sessions. Donations are always appreciated to help offset the cost of these items.


"Autism spectrum disorders have confounded the medical community, therapists – and especially parents – for generations. In Qatar, we’ve paid special attention to autism research, to its diagnosis and treatment, and to the critical issue of autism acceptance.

Qatar is very pleased to contribute to Touro University’s Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities and to support the outstanding work they are doing in Nevada to treat children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.

Every child should have the opportunity to live a healthy, happy and productive life. That’s a goal we in Qatar and the team at the Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities share, and together, we are working to make it happen.
