Revenue raised from this event will support the work of NDSC, allowing us to continue to foster our Affiliate Program, a network of local and regional groups across the globe that provide support and resources to those with, or serving those with, Down syndrome. Funds raised will help continue to build programs and provide resources such as one-day summits and captioned webinars, in both English and Spanish, through our Center for Outreach & Education, whose purpose is to reach individuals, families, and professionals where they are.
The efforts of this event will support the NDSC National Call Center; the production of printed materials; in English, Spanish, Icelandic, and other languages as requested; and our annual convention, the largest single gathering of people with Down syndrome, their families, and the medical and education professionals who serve them, in the world.
We are asking for your support to reach our goal of $250,000 by becoming a sponsor, making a donation and/or sharing this event with your network.
