Brenner Arts Fund

Grant information for applicants

The Brenner Art Fun was created by the ADS board members in 2005 when Stephanie Brenner, the Co-Founder and Past President of ADS, relocated to Florida. This Fund, named in her honor, was initiated so there would be a resource for individuals living with ASD to pursue art, music or dance. It supports the interests and hobbies of those who live with Autism within the Hudson Valley. Enriching the lives for those with autism has always been a passion of the Brenner Family.
