Support the work of Down Syndrome Education International

Help us do more to improve education for children with Down syndrome worldwide. Our work for children with Down syndrome depends on the generosity of families, friends, companies and foundations around the world. Your support is vital and you can give in many ways.

There are many ways to help our work: donating, organizing fundraising events, introducing us to corporate sponsors or trusts and foundations, and remembering us in your will.
