Nick Savarese

Executive Director

Nick is responsible for the overall management of the day-to-day operations of the Flutie Foundation. He works closely with the Foundation’s Board of Directors, staff, and many other constituents with a goal of growing the Foundation and significantly increasing its impact in the lives of people and families affected by autism. While he is involved in all aspects of the Foundation’s work, his primary focus is to provide vision and grow revenue, as the Foundation approaches its 25th Anniversary in 2023.

Prior to joining the Flutie Foundation, Nick spent eleven years at Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) working in a variety of capacities, including his final role as Vice President for Advancement and Marketing.

Prior to moving back to his home state of Massachusetts and joining SOMA, Nick founded Sky’s the Limit, a Colorado-based organization providing inclusive social and recreational programs for children with and without disabilities. Nick received a B.A. from Metropolitan State Universality of Denver with a concentration in Nonprofit Organization Management.

Nick spends his free time with his wife, Stephanie, running between soccer, dance, basketball, and all the other activities of their two children Naomi and Dominic. Nick is also an avid sports fan, rooting for all the Boston professional sports teams to continue their recent run of great success.
