Who we are

NEXT for AUTISM is a non-profit organization that transforms the national landscape of services for people with autism by strategically designing, launching and supporting innovative programs.

Jon Stewart returns to television for Night of Too Many Stars, a live show presented from the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. The special will feature stand-up performances, sketches and short films, all part of the effort to raise money and awareness for autism programs.

Our Mission

NEXT For AUTISM believes that individuals with autism have the potential to live fulfilling, productive lives when supported by excellent services and connected to their communities. We continually ask, what’s next for people on the autism spectrum?

The live comedy benefit raises money to create and fund desperately needed schools and services, reaching thousands of individuals, families and communities across the country. Plus, the evening brings a whole lot of laughter.

How we do it

While many organizations engage in advocacy or fund scientific research, NEXT For AUTISM addresses the needs of people with autism and their families across the country, right now. We create and support exceptional educational, clinical, and vocational programs, all cutting-edge, all with an eye towards affecting fundamental shifts in current approaches to autism services.

The famous, funny and famously funny come out for a good cause, and we use their talents to raise awareness and funds for autism programs.
