I’ve taken a deep dive into the workings of the Autism Trust, and I’ve found that all you need to do is a quick Google search to uncover a wealth of information about this non-profit organization. Despite the ease of access to this data, I’ve noticed a troubling indifference among the public. It seems that people are becoming desensitized or worn down to a point of apathy. But not me – I’m determined to seek out the truth and share what I discover, a quality that feels increasingly rare these days.
During my investigation, I stumbled upon the Trust’s 2019 filings and noticed hefty donations coming in from various sources, including the relentless fundraising campaigns involving the VAX bus. The Autism Trust has received millions, with figures like Del Big Tree contributing to these large sums. It’s a lot to take in, and I encourage you to follow this story closely. However, something doesn’t sit right with me about how these funds are being used, especially when considering the Trust’s zoning disputes and the muted progress on their ambitious plans for providing services to individuals with autism.
My skepticism only grows as I reflect on the Trust’s trajectory and the mysterious quiet surrounding their current operations. A generous 40-acre land donation by Bertha Bradley, intended to support people with autism, raises more questions than answers about the Trust’s effectiveness. With my background, having a family deeply involved in non-profit retirement communities, I understand the complexities and potential for secretive financial setups. And looking ahead, I am concerned about what will become of the individuals with autism as they and their caregivers grow older. My family has been fortunate to secure good care for our child, but my heart goes out to those still searching for solutions. I urge everyone to stay curious, to keep asking questions, and to demand transparency for the sake of all the families facing these challenging circumstances. May they find the support and solutions they so desperately need.
