TOGETHER WHILE APART
Our foundation’s mission to bring people together and serve as a resource for our community took on a new meaning this past year. Everyone faced various challenges in a world that had been turned upside down. Those changes had an even bigger impact in the lives of those affected by autism. Although we could not physically be together, we found ways to adjust and connect virtually. We have always had a global impact and in some instances, it became easier for those around the world to join us. What started as a personal mission from Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie, inspired by autism in his own family, continues to expand and grow, giving a voice and a platform to those who may have previously been overlooked. Since 2018, we have raised close to $10 million for research and advocacy, thanks to the love, support, and unbelievable commitment of our community. We are inspired by the work of our thought leaders as they advance programs and scientific breakthroughs in neurodiversity. Although there is still a long way to go, we can see the transformational effects each day.
