The Els for Autism Foundation

Liezl and Ernie Els established The Els for Autism Foundation in 2009. The Els’ family is impacted by the disorder which affects 1 in 68 children in the U.S. The world class pro golfer and his wife are devoting their efforts to a catalytic philanthropic project - The Els Center of Excellence. Created as an epicenter to connect the international autism communities, the facility creates shared best practices and latest research for improved collaboration. The 26-acre facility provides on-site education for 300 students, ages 3-21 years old. Services include early intervention, therapeutic, medical and professional in addition to research, transition to adulthood, and on-site job training.
