Els for Autism Foundation was established in 2009 by Liezl and Ernie Els. The Els’ son, Ben, is impacted by the disorder which affects 1 in 44 children in the U.S. The world-class pro golfer and his wife have devoted their efforts to a game-changing, philanthropic undertaking – The Els Center of Excellence® Center. The Center is a world-class, 26-acre campus that is home to three distinct nonprofit organizations: Els for Autism Foundation, The Learning Center, a tuition-free, nonprofit, Palm Beach County public charter school serving students ages 3 – 14, and The Learning Academy, a tuition-free, nonprofit, Palm Beach County public charter school serving students ages 14 – 21.

The Foundation offers innovative, evidence-based programs for families and individuals across the lifespan in three areas of focus: Early Intervention & Education Services, Recreation Services, and Adult Services. Els for Autism Foundation serves families around the world, offering programs and services both virtually and in person at The Els Center of Excellence campus in Jupiter, Florida.

Your generous donation will help provide services to individuals with autism and their families. Our staff uses evidence-based practices to guide the development of new and effective ways to provide services and support to individuals of all ages on the autism spectrum. - Where possibilities are endless -
