Since its 2000 inception, the annual Aspire Spring Gala has helped transform the lives of countless children, teens and young adults on the autism spectrum. A partnership of Massachusetts General Hospital and MassGeneral Hospital for Children, Aspire has led the way in promoting independence and social connection through engaging, developmentally appropriate activities.

In 2014, Aspire brought in nearly $1.6 million to fund financial aid, program development and pro bono work in the Boston Public Schools.

Money raised by the gala—much of which comes from Aspire/autism corporate sponsorships—makes these state-of-the-art interventions possible. Over the years, the event has steadily grown more and more successful. In 2014, it brought in nearly $1.6 million to fund financial aid, program development and pro bono work in the Boston Public Schools.

Expanding Innovative Services for a Growing Population

With help from our partners, including local leaders in business and entertainment, Aspire has had a major impact on the way the medical and educational communities respond to autism. The initiatives take many forms, from group social activities to summer camps, college mentoring to internship placements. But the need only continues to grow.

Through an Aspire/autism corporate sponsorship, your organization will support a cause that affects many people in the community, including some of your employees’ and customers’ families.
