The Down Syndrome Research Foundation was awarded a $10,000 grant from the RBC Foundation which will go towards funding our specialized adult literacy programs.

Since 1995, RBC Foundation has donated $259,905 to DSRF and has also provided annual support through RBC Dominion Security and RBC Capital Markets for our Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal based fundraisers the Up the Down Market Dinners. We would like to thank RBC for their dedication to helping to create a better future for Canadians with developmental disabilities!
