Show and Grow

UDSF families, friends, community leaders and business owners, we need you! In order for UDSF to fulfil its mission of supporting individuals with Down syndrome and their families, we need your help. We invite you to attend our quarterly activities and New and Expectant Parent Breakfasts. We invite you to attend an annual Mighty Steps for Down Syndrome Walk and EXTRAvaganza in your area this year. Invite your friends and family to come too. Let them see how wonderful our Down syndrome community is and why it's important for us to gather and advocate for our children with Down syndrome. Show so we can grow! By showing up and as our numbers grow, we can assess the need and continue providing activities and programs for our members. We invite you to volunteer! We always need help to make our events run effectively and smoothly. Your feedback is essential too! Let us know what UDSF can do for your family. Remind your friends and family when they're looking for a non profit to donate to, that we would love their monetary support. Ask your employer if they have a matching program where your personal donation can be matched. Host your own fundraiser where UDSF is the beneficiary. As far as supporting UDSF, the possibilities are endless. But one thing remains the same, we need you! We need each other to grow and together we can make a difference!
