Memorial and Tribute Giving

Looking for a meaningful way to honor or remember someone you love? You and your family can contribute to the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress in a loved one’s name.

Memorial contributions to the MDSC are another way for people to keep their loved one’s memory alive by helping the organization achieve its critical mission, ensuring that individuals with Down syndrome are valued, included, and given opportunities to lead meaningful lives in the community.

We will notify you of each gift made in your loved one’s name, and acknowledge each person who makes a contribution.

To make a memorial or tribute gift today, click here for online donations, or mail checks, payable to MDSC, to 20 Burlington Mall Road, Suite 261, Burlington, MA  01803.

Wedding Favors

Wedding Shoes

On your wedding day, why not thank your guests in the most special of ways? Make a donation to the MDSC in your guests’ honor. Not only will your guests appreciate the gesture, it will make a real difference in the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families.

With a minimum contribution of $250, we can provide you with 4”x4” favor cards for each place-setting with the following message:

With much thought and consideration,
We chose a special way to say
“thank you” for sharing in our day.
In lieu of a traditional favor, we’ve made
A donation in your honor to the
Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress.

In Lieu of Gifts

Planning another kind of special occasion but don’t need a pile of gifts? Instead, make your celebration an opportunity to celebrate people with Down syndrome.

Their donation will be tax-deductible and support all of the MDSC’s programs and services that people with Down syndrome and their families depend on.
