Host an Online Fundraiser for NCDSA

The majority of NCDSA funding comes from individual donors making contributions throughout the year and during Buddy Walk season.

Peer to peer fundraising allows individuals to raise money on behalf of a NCDSA via online fundraising pages. This method enables people to use their social networks to maximize the impact of their fundraising campaigns. Set up a Facebook fundraising page in honor of World Down Syndrome Day!
