Support GAN

GAN is a unique 501(C)(3), all-volunteer nonprofit organization, providing beneficial cost-free programs that are exclusive to grandparents of children with autism. Contributions to GAN are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Please help us to continue to be a vital resource for autism … and each other.

  • Underwrite printing, mailing and other operating costs to enable GAN to sustain and expand programs that benefit grandparents and help them to improve the quality of life for their children and grandchildren.
  • Sponsor an honorarium, a presentation or an event to share with grandchildren, in your name or to honor another person.
