Ben’s Fund provides grants to families who have a child on the autism spectrum and need help covering costs that are associated with medical bills, therapies, and other numerous aspects that help to support the child.
Ben’s Fund was launched in 2012 by Seahawks GM John Schneider, wife Traci, and the Seattle Seahawks Women’s Association, and in partnership with Families for Effective Autism Treatment (FEAT) of Washington.
