Serving New Orleans Area Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Support the Chartwell Center with Annual Giving or AmazonSmile

As a small non-profit who receives no state or federal funding, the Chartwell Center relies heavily on the financial support of individual donors. It costs Chartwell over $36,000 to educate one child, but tuition covers less than half of that cost. Without the support of those in the community who care, we would be unable to open our doors. You can make a safe and secure online donation via PayPal.

Children with autism experience problems in all major areas of learning and have significant difficulties with communication, social interaction, cognitive development, sensory integration and self-regulation. In some cases, students are also impaired in the development of motor skills. The Chartwell students receive occupational, speech, music and recreational therapies; and our PATH students receive vocational and life-skills training activities such as going to the grocery, ordering at a coffee shop or taking public transportation. The ability to benefit from these activities is entirely contingent upon funding in the general operating budget. Our Annual Giving drive is truly Chartwell's lifeline. To those of you who have given in the past, we thank you for your generosity and we ask for your help once again. To those of you who are new to Chartwell's extended family, we make a heartfelt appeal for support. Click here to read our current annual giving letter.

Another great way to give is by ordering from Amazon! has launched AmazonSmile, which will benefit The Chartwell Center every time you shop. You will find the same prices, selection and shopping experience by using AmazonSmile. The first time you log on to, you will be asked to choose a charity. Once you choose Chartwell Consortium, Chartwell will receive 0.5% of the purchase price from any eligible purchase. As long as you remember to make your purchases through the AmazonSmile site, Chartwell will receive the donation every time you shop!! HAPPY SHOPPING!!
