The MDSC is at the forefront of Down syndrome advocacy, championing policies and causes important to the Down syndrome community. We also provide parents, educators, health care professionals, people with Down syndrome and the community-at-large with the latest information and networking opportunities. This is difficult work, and we cannot do it without your support.
Your partnership will have a positive impact in the lives of the over 5,000 people with Down syndrome in Massachusetts and the hundreds of thousands of family members, friends, teachers, classmates, and co-workers they are connected to.
The MDSC organizes many events throughout the year, including our Buddy Walk events, Annual Hockey Game with the Boston Bruins Alumni, Annual Conference, Educators Forum, and endurance events such as the Boston Marathon and Falmouth Road Race.
In total, these events draw more than 6,000 participants, and through our event sponsorship program, your employees and customers can be among them. Plus, you can reach thousands of potential new customers, not only at the events themselves, but through our event marketing materials. Each event has different levels of sponsorship. We also create customized packages for companies who are interested in supporting more than one of our events or programs.
Give your customers an opportunity to support people with Down syndrome at the register. Through our “Buddy Bucks” checkout donation program, customers can donate $1 or $5 (or any other amount) to the MDSC in a matter of seconds. The MDSC will provide you with “Be a Buddy” slips (right) and any assistance you need to launch your Buddy Bucks campaign.
