Philanthropist Lloyd Claycomb Partners with SARRC to Raise Awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorders
Date:5/10/2017

Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC), the internationally distinguished autism spectrum disorder (ASD) nonprofit educational outreach and advocacy group, may soon announce the appointment of businessman and philanthropist Lloyd Claycomb II to its board of directors. Claycomb recently attended SARRC’s Annual Community Breakfast fundraiser, where he was recognized for his tireless service to the ASD community, and met with, SARRC President and CEO, Daniel Openden, with whom he discussed the organization’s groundbreaking programs.

“It is my personal belief that we need to share in the blessings we have been fortunate to have received in our lives with those who most need it,” says Mr. Claycomb. “I know wonderful people who’ve been touched by ASD, and they’ve struggled to get the support they need to ensure a happy and healthy life for their children. It’s time that autism becomes accepted and understood.”

The SARRC fundraiser, “Revolution: Redefining the Status Quo,” marked the 20th anniversary of the now storied institution. With more than 1,800 guests in attendance, the event gave the diverse crowd of families, benefactors, and community leaders the opportunity to hear and share stories of the triumphs and milestones that have been achieved across the past two decades. Mr. Claycomb has himself donated and helped to raise $100,000 for SAARC.

Claycomb also works closely with Child Help Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping child abuse survivors overcome the physical, emotional, and spiritual trauma of neglect, violence, emotional abuse, and exploitation. Through targeted prevention, intervention, and treatment programs, the organization works to not only facilitate the physical and mental recovery of abused children, but to stop the cycle of cruelty. To date, Mr. Claycomb has donated $50,000 to the Child Help Foundation.

Claycomb’s diverse community work includes his position as National Director to The Navy League of the United States, a nonprofit civilian sea services advocacy group that provides needed support to the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S.flag Merchant Marine servicemen and women. Furthermore, Claycomb serves on the board of directors for Adventist World Aviation and the Maricopa County Youth Assistance Foundation, and maintains executive roles in the nonprofit organizations Waves of Grace International Ministry and Our Warriors at Home.

In January 2017, Claycomb offered his services as voluntary auxiliary to the Bonner County Sheriff’s Department, and was duly sworn in as a Special Deputy Sheriff by Sheriff Daryl Wheeler. A certified jet pilot with more than 5,000 hours of flight time in assorted aircraft, Mr. Claycomb routinely donates his personal jet helicopter to the Bonner County Sheriff’s office to supplement their Search & Rescue and SWAT services.

In addition to his personal financial donations, nonprofit leadership appointments, fundraising efforts, and community work, Claycomb has leveraged his considerable social and political influence into significant exposure for ASD and child abuse initiatives. As a member of President Trump’s Transition Committee, he was able to share insights into his numerous philanthropic endeavors, taking an active role in shaping the administration’s public policy strategies. Before taking his appointment, Mr. Claycomb was one of the largest donors to the Trump presidential campaign, and served as a 2016 State Victory Finance Chair for the Republican National Committee.

“It is estimated that one in 68 children will be diagnosed with autism,” says Claycomb. “While that seems like an impossible number, there have been so many advances in diagnostic criteria and education in the past 20 years that we’re able to provide an unprecedented level of support to ASD children, adults, and their families.”

Lloyd Claycomb II continues, “With the right resources, programs, and empowerment, we can give ASD children the tools to live productive and fulfilling lives. We want the world to view autism as a challenge, not a curse – a part of the fabric of the colorful human tapestry.”

Lloyd Claycomb can be contacted via Twitter or through his website.
