Founded by Brad Ludden in 2001, First Descents (FD) launched with the vision to provide life-changing adventure experiences for young adults with cancer. FD has positively impacted thousands of lives in its 15-year history and is a leader in the young adult oncology movement. In an effort to honor Brad’s legacy and recognize the many generous supporters who have helped First Descents succeed, FD has established a closed donor society.
Donations to the Founder’s Circle will be earmarked for general operating support and typically used within the year they are received. The minimum required donation to be a part of the Founder’s Circle is $25,000, payable over three (3) years. Once the Founder’s Circle reaches pledges totaling $1 million, the society will be closed.
