Lyman Foundation (3)_edited.jpg

The Lyman foundation was established in 1996 and is a registered non-profit organization. We help facilitate public awareness of autism through national and local autism awareness events to ensure that every student has the opportunity to become an integral member of the community.

Who We Are

The Burger Program is a center-based school for Wayne County students with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. We are dedicated to raising funds for the Burger School for Students with Autism. The funds raised by the Foundation provide enrichment and curriculum in the Program. 

What We Do

The Lyman Foundation fundraises by hosting events, fundraising, and accepting donations throughout the year. The biggest and most popular event is our annual golf outing.  However, none of this could be done with YOU! THANK YOU! Please continue to show you support!
