INDIANAPOLIS, IN – June 30, 2016 – HighPoint Global®, the citizen experience companyTM, announced today that it has donated over $125,000 to support the respite care program for the Autism Society of Indiana for the third year in a row. The Autism Society of Indiana (ASI) is a leading resource in Indiana for connecting people who live with autism, and those who care about them, with resources, support, advocacy and information tailored to their unique needs. The respite program provides a way for caregivers to get a needed break from their day-to-day duties and provide a safe and nurturing environment for those with autism. The program started with the goal of helping five families, but has gone on to help over 45.
Additionally, HighPoint employees raised $4,140 for the Indianapolis Autism Speaks walk. The event raises funds for vital autism research and continued family services. The HighPoint Cares team exceeded their fundraising goal of $3,500, and employees and their families participated in the walk on Saturday, June 4. The company will also be participating in the D.C. Autism Speaks event in October.
“I love seeing our team come together and work towards goals beyond just those of our day jobs,” said CEO Ben Lanius. “I am so proud and completely inspired by all of the caring HighPoint employees for once again donating time and money from all across the entire company to benefit such a meaningful organization.”
HighPoint has also donated $1,500 to a Summer Institute program through the Indianapolis Public Schools. This donation supports the continued education of special educators to learn best practices, curriculum, methodologies and co-teaching methods that will support all learners with autism and other special needs. The donation will go towards funding nationally recognized speakers and materials for the program.
