How to help
DSG provides valuable services to individuals with Down syndrome. You can help us by joining our cause. One simple thing you can do is start changing attitudes about Down syndrome. Know the myths and truths. Knowledge is power!
DSG is fully funded through grants, private donations and fundraisers. We receive no state or federal dollars to meet our operational budget. Please consider a gift to DSG to support our great work.
Volunteering is a rewarding way to benefit DSG and your community. We invite you to get involved in DSG’s many volunteer opportunities. Check out our volunteer page to view upcoming volunteer opportunities.
Serve on a Committee or the Board of Directors
DSG encourages interested parties to contact our office to learn more about applying to serve on a committee or on the board of directors. Applications outline the requirements to serve and process for applying.
Host a Dress Down for Down Syndrome Day
DSG has Dress Down Kits ready to go which include marketing fliers, collection envelopes and participant stickers. Help promote greater awareness in your office, civic group or organization by hosting a Dress Down Day. DSG will gladly provide an awareness presentation or participate in a check presentation if your group is interested.
Dine Out for Down Syndrome
Approach a local restaurant and ask them to support DSG by donating a portion of a day's sales/tips to support our mission. We can design a flier and share it with our members through various channels.
