Fraser Achieves $500,000 Challenge Grant from The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation

- 1/5/2017

Fraser, Minnesota's largest and most experienced provider of autism services, has raised an additional $500,000 from foundations and individuals in the community in order to receive a $500,000 challenge grant from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation to support a new Fraser clinic in the Twin Cities east metro.

There is a great demand for autism and mental health services throughout the Twin Cities, and especially in the east metro where there are few service providers. Fraser has purchased a parcel of land in the east metro to build a state-of-the-art clinic to serve more children and adults with special needs.

“This challenge grant will help us move to the next phase of building a new Fraser clinic in the east metro,” said Diane Cross, Fraser President and CEO. “We are now able to begin designing the building and look forward to serving more families.”

Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation began its work in 2004 and has consistently directed its primary efforts and resources toward matters of importance in health, education and basic human services. It continues to do so today with a focus on investments that produce specific and measurable outcomes.

Fraser is Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism services. Fraser provides services for mental health and other developmental disabilities for children and adults with special needs through healthcare, education and housing.
