Whether you make a one-time donation, join our Club 21 monthly giving program, support our fundraising efforts, or volunteer, you’re not just changing the lives of individuals with Down syndrome. You’re changing lives throughout the entire Central Kentucky region. Your gifts help us build a better community for everyone as we promote understanding, inclusion, and acceptance. 

Your donations, for example, enable us to do such things as train educators and equip them with new tools, help the medical community provide better care to individuals with Down syndrome, offer programming to individuals with Down syndrome and their families, sponsor a wide variety of events for all ages – all FREE OF CHARGE! As far as we know, we are the only Down syndrome organization that does not charge for its programs, services and events.
