Ben's Fund logo and side text F

FEAT proudly announces that Ben’s Fund is now available to accept grant applications!

Established by Traci and John Schneider to honor their son Ben who has autism, Ben’s Fund is now accepting applications from families who have a child on the autism spectrum in Washington who are in need of assistance to reduce the financial stress that families face.  Grants that are awarded may be used for therapy, doctor’s visits, special equipment or other needed services defined in the instructions and application.

We are so grateful for the Schneiders’ leadership and the generosity of all who are joining them to support Ben’s Fund.  We also thank the Seattle Seahawks and the Seahawks Women’s Association for their involvement and support of Prime Time, the annual event that raises funds to make this grant possible.  Collectively, they help us further the FEAT mission, “Providing families with hope and guidance to help their children with autism reach their full potential.”

On behalf of the Schneiders and the whole FEAT family, help us spread the word, so many families may benefit.”
