RI-CART graciously thanks our supporters. Our work would not be possible without their financial support. To ensure RI-CART's future and expand our programming, we're always seeking new grants. If your organization offers grants for autism-related research and programming, please email us at RICART@Lifespan.org. We'd welcome the opportunity to submit.
Launched in 2003, SFARI is a scientific initiative within the Simons Foundation's suite of programs. SFARI’s mission is to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders by funding innovative research of the highest quality and relevance.
In 2007, SFARI issued its first request for applications, its goal being to attract top researchers to the field of autism research. Today, with a budget of approximately $75 million per year, SFARI supports over 250 investigators and since its launch has provided or committed more than $380 million in external research support to more than 400 investigators in the U.S. and abroad
