The Milestones Annual Fund consists of annual, unrestricted gifts. Because Annual Fund dollars are used in the same year that they are received, each gift has an immediate impact on the quality of education, training, resources, and programming that Milestones is able to provide and also enables us to build upon previous success.
Milestones Autism Resources’ Pathway to the Future Endowment Campaign
Roadmap to Adulthood
Parents and families affected by autism face particular challenges when navigating the transition from public school to adulthood. The Roadmap to Adulthood project, which will be sustained by this endowment, empowers families to access resources, advocate for their adult children, and navigate government support systems. Through this project, Milestones trains service providers and educators to more effectively work with young adults with autism spectrum disorder and links both parents and professionals with services.
The Milestones Autism Resources’ Pathway to the Future Endowment Fund is a pool of gifts that provides ongoing financial assistance to Milestones and its programs particularly the Roadmap to Adulthood. The fund is held and managed by the Cleveland Foundation which invests the gifts for greater return on investment and prudent growth.
Each gift is vital to ensuring the success of the adult services program, as well as to the continuity of Milestones mission to provide access, education, training, and collaboration for the autism community. The fund offers donors a variety of giving options. For more information, please call the Gift Planning and Donor Relations team at the Cleveland Foundation at (216) 831-3810 or Milestones at (216) 464-7600.
