Our work over the past 50 years has only been possible through the generosity of private donors. Today those who wish to support our mission to provide information, advocacy, and support concerning all aspects of life for individuals with Down syndrome, and with a vision of a world with equal rights and opportunities for people with Down syndrome can engage friends and family in raising funds and awareness online. Through social accounts such as Facebook and GoFundMe, you can help raise awareness and funds to support the projects and programs of the NDSC such as Rural Outreach and Educators Conferences and provide the needed funds to continue our advocacy and policy changing efforts to create a world with more opportunities for our loved ones.
Here’s how you can make a difference!
On your Facebook page, you can create a fundraiser for the National Down Syndrome Congress. It is as simple as telling why the work of the NDSC is important to you and promoting the campaign to all of your friends and family. Your single campaign, coupled with hundreds of other single campaigns, can add up to huge numbers and overall awareness – not only for the NDSC but for the Down syndrome community!
How to get started:
- Create your Online Fundraiser at https://www.facebook.com/fund/thendsc/
- Choose the time frame of your fundraiser
- Set your fundraising goal
- Tell why NDSC is your charity of choice
- Promote your fundraiser – tell all your friends
- Facebook will send us a check
It is important to note that we do not see everyone who donates to your fundraiser, so make sure to thank them.
