Help make your community a better place for Canadians with Down syndrome!


Help Support Down Syndrome Services

There are so many ways to take part in the many Canadian Down Syndrome Society initiatives and help people with Down syndrome and their loved ones. Through becoming a member of the CDSS community and donating time, resources or funds to CDSS, you can support people with Down syndrome across the country. You also get exclusive resources and publications, access to videos from past conferences, and more.

There are many ways to help, including monthly donations and celebratory donations.

Corporate sponsorship is a key aspect of the Canadian Down Syndrome Society’s fundraising and awareness efforts.

Financial Help for Down Syndrome Services

Your individual donations and corporate sponsorships help us create and distribute the information and resources to support people with Down syndrome, their families, and the network of people who support them. CDSS receives no core funding so it is only the donations of Canadians like you that help us support new parents, create inclusive classrooms, encourage inclusive employment, and provide support and comfort at all stages of life.

By Donating, You Achieve A Lot

“Being part of CDSS taught me to be a great self-advocate. It taught me to be myself, be informed, and be confident. I now help people by speaking out.”
