Thank you for choosing to support the Canadian Down Syndrome Society. We do not receive any core government or agency funding and rely solely on the generosity of the community and people like you to #SeeTheAbility of Canadians with Down syndrome. We provide resources, information and help build awareness about Down syndrome. Your donations help make this happen. The Canadian Down Syndrome Society’s charitable business number is 11883 0751 RR 0001.
What better way to “See The Ability” than to honour a loved one or recognize a special occasion by making a difference for Canadians with Down syndrome?

To make giving as easy as possible, we’re pleased to offer donors the option to make a monthly gift and provide you with the convenient choice of using your bank account or credit card on the same date each month. With our monthly giving option, you can pledge your support, receive a valuable tax receipt and incorporate your charitable giving into your monthly financial plan. This also allows the Canadian Down Syndrome Society to budget for the year ahead knowing that ongoing donor support can be counted on. To arrange for monthly giving, you can select it on the online donation form below or contact our office at 1-800-883-5608 and we’ll be happy to set it up.
Including the Canadian Down Syndrome Society in your will or making another kind of planned gift, is one of the most significant and lasting contributions you can make to the Down syndrome community across Canada.
