To encourage parents, relatives and friends of those struggling with autism to find a positive outlet by leading an active lifestyle that promotes awareness and raises funds for autism-related charities.
What we do
The Operation Jack Autism Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity created in 2009 in honor of Jack Felsenfeld, who was born in 2003 and is severely autistic.
Most of the funds we raise come from the nationwide series of Operation Jack events. We also provide an easy-to-use fundraising platform for individual participants trying to raise money for the autism-related charity of their choice.
The foundation has no staff and no office and strives to be as cost-effective as possible. The work needed to make the foundation thrive is done on a volunteer basis. Through January 2015, the foundation and its events have grossed approximately $300,000.
Let us help you!
We’re always looking for great causes to support. We’ve created races to help organizations all across the country, built training teams to support local autism-related charities, provided individual coaching and fundraising pages to parents looking to support the charity of their choice and made grants to many worthy small charities in need. If any of these sound like things that would benefit you or your organization, contact us and we’ll see what we can do to help!
