Towards Our Goal






Recurring Donors

We are fundraising for change!

We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support our work. By becoming a fundraiser for Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network, you will help more new and expectant families of young children with Down syndrome, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.

Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help we can ensure accurate diagnosis information to new families with a diagnosis.

Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network (DSDN) is a non-profit organizationthat provides an online-based network. Our mission is to connect, inform and support new families at the time of diagnosis and to impact the diagnosis conversation so that every family receives accurate, up to date information along with the diagnosis. We currently support over 4000 families that have a child with Down syndrome, with an emphasis on diagnosis and early childhood.

DSDN offers families:

  • Private, moderated Birth club groups for families from Pregnancy through age 3
  • Topical Subgroups for families to more deeply connect around content that matters most to them (cancer diagnosis, IEPs, single parenting, loss, Spanish speaking, etc)
  • Materials to provide to medical professional, local organizations and new families
  • Rockin' Family Fund programming to support families with:
    • Welcome gifts
    • Care gift cards
    • Memorial gifts
    • Scholarships for Ds related events
  • Our annual DSDN Rockin' Mom Retreat to connect, inspire and recharge moms within our network

As of 2017, we have a board of 8, more than 100 volunteers, over 20 birth club groups, 25+ subgroups and have reached to over 4000 members worldwide!

Contributions to Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
