In 2011, the Foundation began to focus its support on organizations and projects that promote the establishment of comprehensive and accessible health care for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Currently, the Foundation gives out around $750,000 each year and has provided (in total) more than $6.5 million in funding support.
