Where does the money go that is donated to Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona?
SDSA never charges parents for the services or support they receive. Over 90 cents of every dollar donated goes to our parental support programs and services we offer.

Our monthly e-Newsletter has about 2,300 subscribers. The new parent packets contain books, CD’s, a DVD, and our favorite bumper sticker that says “My kid has more chromosomes than your kid!” to empower and give hope to new families. We offer monthly support group meetings and invite speakers that educate and empower. With our Sharing Down Syndrome Walk, Christmas and Easter Parties, we enjoy Celebrating Down Syndrome!
