Finances of Autism Organizations

Left Brain/Right Brain looks at IRS Form 990, finding that Autism Speaks ($45.5m in revenue) and Generation Rescue ($641k in revenue) both have roughly equal ratios of salaries to program service expenses. Also it finds that the National Autism Association ($542k in revenue) does not have the thousands of dues paying members that it had claimed. "The lowest dues level for the NAA is $35/year. The amount of dues collected was $12,465. This suggests a maximum of 356 dues paying members."
