Established in 1994, the NDSC Foundation manages the financial assets that the National Down Syndrome Congress accumulates through the generous contributions of both individuals and organizations to sustain and promote the mission of the Congress.

As a separate corporation, the purpose of the Foundation is to:

  • Hold and invest monies received for the benefit of the National Down Syndrome Congress.
  • Acquire additional funds to hold and invest.
  • Support the National Down Syndrome Congress.

Each year, the NDSC Foundation distributes a portion of the Endowment Fund to the Congress to be used as part of its overall operating budget. Additionally, the Foundation may respond to requests for additional funding made with the approval of the NDSC Board of Directors to be used for specific Congress programs and projects.

The NDSC Foundation is governed by a seven member Board of Trustees, which is appointed by the Board of Directors of the National Down Syndrome Congress. The trustees are charged with establishing the overall investment philosophy for the Foundation and oversee the activities of an independent investment manager whom they select.
