About the Concert for Autism

The Concert for Autism is produced by a group of musicians who have personal connections to autism as fathers, mothers, family members and friends. Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to learn, communicate, and interact with others. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that autism now occurs in 1 out of every 36 children. The proceeds from this event are donated to the Desert Autism Foundation. This foundation is a local Coachella Valley organization that provides financial assistance to families with autistic children so they may afford vital therapies, programs, and activities. We have found this charity to offer valuable assistance for these families on a daily basis. Your donation to this charity is tax deductible.
