According to Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism advocacy organization, autism affects one out of every 88 children in the United States each year. It is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the country. The Center for Learning Unlimited (CLU) has been helping educate children with autism for nearly three decades.
Gary Fournier, a notable Los Angeles philanthropist, actively supports The Center for Learning Unlimited and shares his thoughts on how others can do the same:
Make a Donation – The CLU is a nonprofit organization that depends on the contributions of supporters to continue making a positive impact on the lives of its students.
Attend an Event – Each year, the CLU sponsors a charity car event, the Rev’ved Up 4 Kids Charity Car Show. Sponsored by Edelbrock, LLC, and held in Torrance, California, the event features more than 600 cars, live entertainment, and plenty of fun-filled activities for the entire family.
Support a Local Fundraiser – The CLU periodically partners with local retail outlets, such as Barnes and Noble and Johnny Rockets, to help raise funds for the Center. Those wishing to support the Center can do so by frequenting the outlets that have partnered with the Center for a fundraiser.
Gary Fournier is currently a Managing Director at JP Morgan in Los Angeles. In addition to The Center for Learning Unlimited, he also supports local community organizations, such as the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy and Parents Helping Parents.
