Donate a Celebration or Tribute Gift

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?

  • Celebrate the arrival of a new baby
  • Honour someone who is celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday, graduation, wedding or anniversary
  • Recognize someone special for all their hard work, or simply let them know they are appreciated
  • Tribute donations make great teacher appreciation gifts.

To donate in honour of someone, select “In honour of” when you fill in the form below. You will receive a tax receipt for your generous gift. CDSS can acknowledge your thoughtful gift by sending a card or email with your personal message to the family or recipient of your choice (please include the name of the honouree, as well as the name and address of the recipient)

Donate a Memorial Gift

Remember a special person by donating a memorial gift to the Canadian Down Syndrome Society.  You will receive a tax receipt for your generous support, and CDSS can acknowledge your thoughtful gift by sending a card or email with your personal message to the bereaved family or recipient of your choice. (please include the name of the honouree, as well as the name and address of the recipient).

Donate Monthly

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.

Donate a Legacy Gift

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. If you would like to arrange for a legacy gift to CDSS, please contact us at 1-800-883-5608.

You can send your generous donation by mail (please do not send cash) to our national office.  Please include your email address on your cheque to receive a tax receipt for any donations over $30.
