Funding Futures began as Funding Futures Chicago, an annual fundraising event hosted by a group of dedicated families and professionals in the Chicagoland area, supporting the cognition research efforts of the LuMind RDS Foundation.
In prior years, the event has taken place in October, which is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month. This year, we expanded our reach by hosting the first annual Funding Futures New York this past September. The second annual event will take place in October 2019.
Beyond supporting this ground-breaking research to impact the future, the participants support each other in their current efforts to help their loved ones with Down syndrome be all that they can be, and to bring more Down syndrome awareness to their communities.
