How the funds work...

  • Send self-advocates to Washington D.C. to push for legislation that benefits people with special needs
  • Pay for social events, like dances, parties and picnics for our adults and children who have Down syndrome
  • Fund activities that enrich the lives of people who have Down syndrome, like horseback riding and swimming lessons
  • Create and distribute of educational materials about Down syndrome to doctors and service providers
  • Outreach and support to new families struggling to understand their child’s diagnosis
