OUR CAUSE

ucfcardpalsstacked-logo.webp

We know how important giving back to your community is to both you and your company. We hope you will consider PALS (Providing Autism Links & Support), a 501c3 non-profit organization, as a major benefactor of your charitable endeavors as a corporate sponsor or raffle prize donator during this challenging time at the Derby Day 4 Autism Golf Classic in 2024. PALS is the supporting non profit of University of Central Florida Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (UCF-CARD), and currently helps more than 18,000 individuals with autism in Central Florida.

PALS Mission: Our goal is to provide support and assistance to optimize the potential of people with autism, dual sensory impairment, and related disabilities in conjunction with the UCF Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (UCF CARD). We serve individuals, their families, and the professionals that support them in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Brevard, Sumter, Volusia, and Lake counties at no charge through various evidence-based direct service programs, school support, family events, conferences, workshops and skill-building strategies.

UCF Center for Autism & Related Disabilities: PALS supports the UCF Center for Autism & Related Disabilities by creating opportunities for individuals in Central Florida and providing state-of-the-art inclusive programs to optimize positive outcomes as they learn, play, work, and live. UCF CARD strives to educate and empower individuals and families throughout the lifespan, and the Center provides training that enables professionals to deliver evidence-based treatments.

 

Why do we need your help? According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 out of 44 children born today is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD is now more common than childhood cancer and diabetes. It is likely that you know someone with autism, or know someone who has a family member with ASD. At the UCF Center for Autism, average Coordinator caseloads have increased by 85% in just 2 years. At today’s level of funding, there is less than $1.00 per day per UCF CARD constituent, and more cuts seem likely in the near future. Needless to say, your support is needed now more than ever.

How can you help? Become a corporate sponsor. By making a monetary donation, you help continue our mission. In return, your generosity will be recognized through a number of marketing materials including our website, showcasing your company as a concerned community member and good neighbor.

You could also donate for our raffle prizes. Making a donation of an item to be used in our prize giveaway is another way to support your community and, again, we will recognize your company on our supporter website. If interested, please email us at pals.florida@gmail.com.

Join us at for the Derby Day 4 Autism Golf Classic 2024. Participate and encourage your employees to join in the fun and help us raise funds for autism supports and services for individuals that reside right here in your community.  If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to e-mail us at info@pals-ucfcard.org. This fun event is a fantastic way to boost morale, support a worthy cause, and give your company publicity.

You will see that becoming a pal of PALS offers a prime opportunity for your company to build brand loyalty, access a desirable target market, and be a strong corporate citizen. Helping to raise awareness and money to fund services right here in our community will make the difference for families that receive our services, and you as a corporation who the families utilize. Become an Official Sponsor of PALS. All funds remain within our communities for the families and individuals with ASD who reside here in Central Florida. See our impact. 

Be a part of the solution, get involved, and make a difference!
