Capital Campaign for ECAC

In order to continue to help additional families and provide the highest caliber services for our students, we have entered into an agreement with Northwest Florida State College to build a 14,500 square foot standalone center for autism on their Niceville, Florida campus.

We are launching a $2.5 million fundraising campaign to help achieve this goal.

With your help, we will be able to fulfill a long-term commitment to families of children with autism on the Emerald Coast for a permanent facility to help their children reach their highest potential.

ECAC is thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC). We believe that this is the best possible long-term solution for an ECAC facility. First and foremost, a facility on the NWFSC campus would allow us to help the maximum number of children with autism that we can and ensure that we have enough space for the long-term sustainability of the student population.


As we have grown, we have developed a better understanding of the type of facility that works best for our students and building our own facility would allow for a much more efficient use of space. Additionally, fundraising for this project would reduce our overall operating expenses and allow us to direct more money toward program services.

You can be assured that your gift to the ECAC Capital Campaign Fund, no matter how large or how small, will have a meaningful impact on the children and families we serve.
