Ways to Give

Volunteers, sponsors and donors are very important to the continued operation of Triangle Down Syndrome Network.  We receive no state or federal dollars to meet our operational budget and our organization is solely funded by those private and corporate donations, our fundraisers and grants.  That means your personal and corporate financial contributions are very important to the Triangle Down syndrome community.

Please consider a gift to TDSN today to support our great mission in the community. Financial contributions are welcome at any time, either by check or credit card. If you are a CapitalOne customer, you can also make one-time or recurring contributions via the CapitalOne No Hassle Giving Site.

Matching Gifts: And remember, many employers will match their employees’ donations to nonprofit organizations. If you need our assistance in signing up for your company’s matching program, please let us know. We are always glad to process any necessary paperwork for you.

Sponsors: Sponsoring our annual flagship event, the Buddy Walk, or one of our many events can be quite rewarding. If you are interested in becoming an event sponsor, please contact the office at 919-803-0515 or email info@tdsn.org.

Other Fundraising Opportunities:

You can help support TDSN without writing a check or pulling out your wallet

  • Use the GoodSearch search engine as your default homepage for all your Internet searches, and designate TDSN to receive money each time you search. It doesn’t sound like much, but if all our members did this, we’d generate more than $4,000 a year.
  • Use the GoodShop portal for all your Internet shopping. You can access many shopping websites, including Ebay, Target, Sears, Overstock, and Amazon. Some merchants will donate up to 30% of your purchase back to TDSN. Download the GoodShop toolbar for Internet Explorer and Firefox for alerts when you’re on a participating website and if there are any additional coupon savings for you.
  • You can shop through Amazon’s charitable donation portal, smile.amazon.com, and easily designate TDSN to be the recipient of a percentage of your purchases.

Volunteering, Committees and the Board:

We have many events throughout the year which require volunteer support—teen dances, the Buddy Walk, the spring picnic, the holiday party, support meetings, office work, and many more. Please join our volunteer corps by completing our online volunteer contact form or emailing volunteer@tdsn.org. When new volunteer opportunities come up, you will be notified.

Serving on Committees or the Board of Directors: We encourages anyone interested in serving on a committee or on the Board of Directors to contact our office to learn more about applying and serving in these volunteer capacities.  In addition to the Board of Directors, TDSN standing committees include the Welcome Committee, Buddy Walk Committee, and Support Meeting Leaders.  You can request an application which outlines the requirements for serving on the Board or committees and the process for applying.
