About this funder:



The Global Down Syndrome Foundation Educational Grants are a benefit for Global members. The Grants are a direct result of surveys sent to many local Down syndrome organizations and feedback from DSAIA Leadership Conference workshops. The surveys and feedback underscored the importance of local educational programs towards creating a brighter future for people with Down syndrome. TThe Grants go directly to Down syndrome organizations to host educational programs for self-advocates, medical professionals, teachers, and parents, and beyond. The Grants will provide parameters to ensure that such educational programs are successful and sustainable.
