This year, we are indebted to many angels in our midst.  Wonderful families and very giving local schools have been very generous to DDSA.  Their tremendous energy and support helps DDSA continue what it does: build a Community.  The moneys raised all go towards offering Member social and active events. 


The Macchione Family, the Macaulay Family, the Myhal Family, St Mary’s Catholic Secondary School (Pickering), Chris Hadfield PS (Whitby) and St Elizabeth C.E.S. (Bowmanville).

Durham Community Foundation generously supported us, both financially and with logistics at their annual Awareness Walk.  Thanks to their generosity, we are able to offer Group Speech Therapy.  We could not have done this without your support.  Thank you!

Past Corporate Sponsors have included Toyota Clarington, Stantec, Station Art Gallery, Elexicon, Whitby’s Mount Lawn Funeral Home and Oshawa Costco.  We are very thankful for their ongoing support.  Would your company or business like to sponsor or donate to the Durham Down Syndrome Association? Please contact us at for information on how we can work together!


The donations we receive help us to subsidize many of our programming and event costs.  In 2023, we are devoting a lot of energy to providing Group Speech Therapy for our members, ages 0 to 12+.  Join us in helping make this provision a yearly happening!
