Mission Statement

The Evan Henry Foundation for Autism is a nonprofit organization that has been established in memory
of Evan Henry. Evan was an 11 year old child from Norwell Massachusetts who was diagnosed with
autism and who accidentally drowned in July, 2000. Evan’s family and friends would like him to be
remembered as a happy and loving child who taught others the true meaning of patience and
compassion. Autism occurs in as many as 1 in 67 individuals and interferes with the normal development
of the brain in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Autism is the third most common
developmental disability. Through this foundation we intend to accomplish the following goals.

1. To fund programs and/or projects benefiting individuals with autism and their families.

2. To promote awareness and education

The funds from this foundation will be awarded to nonprofit organizations that provide services to
children and families affected by autism.

Grant Applications
