Make Dreams Come True: Donate Today

At DSRF, success is measured not in numbers, but in stories of lives transformed and potential unleashed. It looks like this:

“My son has had more success at DSRF than at any other reading program- and believe me, we have tried many! The activities keep him engaged, and the fact that the words are personally meaningful to him is very motivating. He is now able to read an easy book independently with complete success. His verbal communications skills have increased, and he has learned to talk in longer sentences now instead of just using one word. His confidence in speaking to others has transferred into his job, and he is comfortable speaking to customers and asking them what they would like. He is much more chatty amongst family and friends, and is adding in more details when talking about his day. This has also transferred to his telephone skills and phone messages. All these skills will be important for him in the workplace.”

Individuals with Down syndrome have tremendous untapped potential. Your donation to DSRF unleashes that potential - to the great benefit of our students, their families, and the entire community.

An online donation is the easiest way to contribute to the DSRF. Throughout the month of December, unleash the UPside of Down syndrome through the DownSide Up campaign. All online donations receive an immediate tax receipt by e-mail.

Monthly Giving

Make an ongoing difference by becoming a Triple-21 partner, donating $21 or $210 per month. 21% of all Triple-21 gifts will be used to provide bursaries for families who cannot afford DSRF programs. Click here for more information on the benefits of Triple-21 partnership, or to sign up.

Donating Securities

Have you considered donating securities? Donating securities is one of the most tax-smart ways to give in Canada. Because there is no capital-gains tax on donations, the tax benefits to the donor may be even more significant than an equivalent cash donation.

If you are interested in donating securities, you can do so online though our page on CanadaHelps (click on the "Give Securities" button on the right-hand side to get started), or by contacting us directly.
