Empowering Individuals. Supporting Communities.
We support individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the West Michigan communities where they live, work, and play.
The Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan Foundation (DSAWMF) was established to provide a permanent source of principal, so that funds would be available in the future to support individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the West Michigan communities in which they live, work, and play. DSAWMF is a separate not-for-profit organization from the Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan (DSAWM), funded by cash, securities and other assets, and helps to fund the vital programs, supports and services provided by DSAWM.
Since its inception, DSAWMF’s annual gala, the Winners Cup Benefit, has raised more than $1,000,000 to support people with Down syndrome in West Michigan.
Connecting Communities Capital Campaign
Connecting Communities is an $850,000 capital campaign that will continue to support individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and communities across 12 West Michigan counties. More details and information on how you can support this exciting endeavor will be shared during the public announcement and campaign launch in August 2021.
