Being able to meet another SATB2 family in person is very special. There is an instant connection when meeting another parent or sibling on the same journey, as if you have known then for years. Further, it is powerful and amazing to see the bond individuals with SATB2 develop with each other. It is a memorable experience, which allows SATB2 families to develop long-lasting bonds and additional support networks.
We want to help foster these personal connections during the years when we do not have a family conference (the next SATB2 International Family Conference will be in 2020).
Would you like to help coordinate a meet up of SATB2 families in your area? Just read below and complete the form.
The Foundation has set aside funds in the 2019 budget to help offset the expenses incurred to host a family meet up. If you would like to organize a family meet up, please complete the short form which will be reviewed by the SATB2 Gene Foundation Board of Directors. Requests for funds should be submitted no later than 4 weeks prior to the planned gathering. The suggested maximum allotment per outing is $300, but all proposals will be considered.
Need ideas? Family outings can range from casual meet ups at the park with a picnic, at someone’s house for a social gathering, a day outing to the local Zoo, children’s museum, bowling, or any other idea that might work well in your community.
Don’t need funds but want help to advertise? The SATB2 Gene Foundation can help with that too!
