Help Our Students Thrive
William's School is the only IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Austin offering school services to autistic and neurodiverse children without exclusion for severe behaviors, communication difficulties, or complex medical needs. We provide crucial support to meet the educational, therapeutic, and social-emotional needs of an oft-underserved population of children and young adults.
Sustaining support comes from individual donors, foundation and corporate grants, volunteers, in-kind gifts, local businesses, and corporate sponsorships. With your continued support, our students will keep learning and thriving in a nurturing school environment.
Per the CDC (2022), 1 in 44 children will be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, and the Austin metroplex is growing with young families. Our organization meets a critical need in the community. Building capacity to broaden our outreach is vital as we all move forward.
Your donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.
