Since 2002, The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation (DJF) has blazed trails in developing and funding community-based programs in all aspects of life for adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Partnering and collaborating with leading experts and service providers, the foundation’s model programs include employment/vocational training, residential living, the arts, an array of recreational pursuits, health and wellness, social/independent living skills, educational advancement, and entrepreneurial endeavors. In each calendar year, the DJF Board of Trustees determines the number, dollar amount, and type or types of grants to be awarded. Generally, these decisions are based on the quality of the proposals received and the feasibility of implementation by the prospective grantees. Additional considerations include the potential for program replication in other communities and the originality of the proposed program.
