Impact of Fundraising

In 1992, ASF was formed to provide support for the AS community, as well as fund vital research to find better treatments and (ultimately) a cure. And for more than 30 years, we have continued to do that and your fundraising efforts support that very important mission. 

The ASF family support programs provide critical resources that make a difference in the lives of those affected by AS. Families might pursue clinical care at one of the ASF Clinics, receive funding for a communication device or therapy through the ASF Family Fund or consult with a mental health professional to help deal with caregiver stress. Research funded by the ASF has paved the way to clinical trials and therapeutics.

Quinn’s Cocoa $4 the Cure

Quinn Pruitt’s fundraiser in Los Angeles, CA started as a way to help his twin sister, Emma be included and show people that kindness always wins. Quinn set out on a mission to raise awareness for Angelman syndrome, as she was joining Quinn’s 1st grade class half way through the school year and show people that what makes us different is what makes us special.

In five years, Quinn raised over $200K selling physical and virtual cups of cocoa.
