There’s more than one way to support the MDSC and make a difference in the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families. At one of our many events throughout the year, you can participate and fundraise for your own team or in some cases to support someone else’s efforts such as for one of our Boston Marathon or Falmouth Road Race runners. All the funds you help raise directly support all MDSC programs and services and generate more awareness about Down syndrome.

If you have your own ideas for a fundraising event to benefit the MDSC, you can be a part of our Community Fundraising program and in involve your neighborhood, school, sports team, work, etc.! All you need is the desire to help, a fundraising idea you’re passionate about, and a plan… and the MDSC can help.
Every community fundraiser benefiting the MDSC must complete an online application, which will help you begin carrying out your plan and also give us the information we need to assist you along the way. Once your fundraiser is approved, we will provide you with an official MDSC endorsement letter, a personal fundraising page if needed, access to use our name and logo, and other helpful tips.
