Who is EGF?Print This Post Jul 24th, 2008 | By admin | Category: EGF News
- The Eddie Guardado Foundation (EGF), through Ava’s Friends, funds individual families affected by Autism by reducing their out of pocket expenses for therapy and treatment. We also join with other similar groups in lobbying Washington as well as State governments on behalf of these families in the hopes that more can be done through MediCare and private insurance to see that every child with Autism can get equal access to proven treatments.
The Eddie Guardado Foundation identifies families in emotional or financial distress through applications submitted to us by the families themselves. Grants from EGF paid directly to identified caregivers on behalf of each family provide direct relief by offsetting the costs of existing treatment plans or by providing access to care they’ve never been able to afford. Each case is different and each family’s situation is evaluated on its own merit.
- The Foundation raises funds for grants through special events, corporate partnerships and individual donations.
