How to Help
The success of The Comprehensive Learning Center is directly related to the ongoing support we receive from our sister organization, The AJ Foundation For Children With Autism. The AJ Foundation hosts 4 major fundraisers each year to help offset the operational costs and facilitate the growth and expansion of CLC. These special events also help support our continued efforts to inform the general public about autism and today's most effective teaching methods for individuals with autism. For more information about the fundraising events click here.

All of our sponsorships levels have dedication pieces that can be engraved with your special message to make your donation more personable. The sponsorship dedication pieces include engraved plaques (silver or bronze) installed outside the sponsored room, an engraved leaf (gold or bronze) added to CLC's Giving Tree in the main lobby, an engraved brick placed outside in CLC's Friends and Family Walkway, or an engraved "Piece of the Puzzle" added to CLC's group plaque.
