DSAGSL Offers a Challenge

We are so excited to report a $10,000 donation from the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis (DSAGSL). The DSAGSL made the pledge during our Annual Appeal/Giving Tuesday – doubling their impact for cognition research!

According to DSASL Executive Director Jeremie Ballinger, “DSAGSL’s families have long been interested in research – especially in cognition research that allows people with Down syndrome to extend and sustain a high quality of life. For the first time, we are backing up this sentiment with a financial commitment, and member input was overwhelming that we direct our initial gift toward LuMind. We applaud LuMind’s research results, and we are especially impressed that LuMind devotes such a high percentage of its funding directly to research.”

The DSAGSL also has something for other Down syndrome affiliate organizations – a challenge!

Giving during our Annual Appeal still takes advantage of our 1:1 match for gifts $1000 or more. Please consider LuMind Foundation in your giving plans.

Thank you to DSAGSL – and all the Ds affiliate organizations that support research!
