Support Us

A gift to Down Syndrome NSW helps us to fulfil our mission. What we do is critical in enabling people with DS to live better lives. We only receive minimal government funding (22%) so we rely on the generosity of the wider community through their financial contributions.



All donations over $2 are tax deductible and go directly to supporting Down Syndrome NSW and its members. The end of the financial year is the perfect time to make a one-off donation. Or, you could make a recurring donation, which is a way of contributing monthly that makes it easy for you and helps us plan ahead for our members. Your set regular gift is automatically decucted monthly from a nominated bank account.
