Legacy giving or planned giving is a meaningful way you can impact the future of individuals with Down syndrome while you and your family receive the benefits of smart financial planning. DSNetwork envisions a world in which all people with Down syndrome have the opportunity to enhance their quality of life, realize their life aspirations, and become valued members of welcoming communities. Your legacy can make that vision a reality.
A legacy gift could be your most powerful and lasting contribution, improving the way babies with Down syndrome are welcomed; changing the way schools, businesses, and communities include our loved ones; and ensuring our adults have the care they need to live rewarding healthy lives as they age.
Charitable gifts, especially legacy gifts, require thoughtful planning. A simple way to establish your legacy is to designate DSNetwork as a beneficiary of your will and trust. You can designate a specific dollar amount or leave a percentage of your estate after providing for loved ones.
