We rely heavily on private donations to run the many great programs and awareness events we host, and your support helps us in building a supportive community for people with Down syndrome and their families.

In 2023, the DDSA received over $2, 500 in private donations, representing almost 30 per cent of our much needed revenue.  Half of these private donations came through CanadaHelps and the other half came from an unexpected source: Facebook’s Birthday Fundraiser.  If you would like to know more about raising funds using either way, please let us know.  We will be most happy to assist.

Donations by cheques are also accepted.  They can be mailed to: Durham Down Syndrome Association P.O. Box 231 Whitby, Ontario L1N 5S1
Donation receipts are issued, upon request, for amounts of $20 or greater.

The Durham Down Syndrome Association is a registered non-profit charity. DDSA Charitable Tax Number:  89144 4572 RR0001


Thank you for your great generosity! We, at Durham Down Syndrome Association, truly appreciate your donations.
