Ways to Give

Make a Donation

Donate online, or participate in your employee giving campaign! DSAW participates in United Way, the Combined Federal Campaign, Community Health Charities, and your personal employee giving campaign. Don't see DSAW on the list? Write us in! Use "Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin, Inc" and EIN 39-1681338

Participate in Sustain 21

Sustain 21 is DSAW's monthly giving program where supporters like YOU can dramatically impact the lives of our friends with Down syndrome and their families by effortlessly making a monthly gift.  This regular financial support shifts focus away from endlessly raising funds to building stronger relationships with our supported families and enhancing current programming. Sustain 21 allows the true heroes of the programs to get the full attention they deserve.

Fundraise for an Awareness Walk

In-Kind Donations

Our locations around the state are always accepting in-kind gifts to help with our programs, services, and events. If you have item(s) to donate, email us to see if we can use them at one of our locations. A full DSAW Wish List will be coming soon!
