How you can help

We help to create awareness around Down syndrome so that the whole community will accept and recognize the greatness we see in our loved ones, not just the differences.  We can’t do it without you, and we’re asking you to get involved.

You can help the Treasure Valley Down Syndrome Association (TVDSA) in our mission to provide support and information about Down syndrome, in many ways:


Anyone at all is welcome at all TVDSA events, parties, or meetings, and is welcome to be on our mailing list.  Members of TVDSA pay a small annual fee of $10 that allows them to borrow books from the Lending Library, apply for scholarships, and vote on matters that guide TVDSA.

To join TVDSA, please complete the membership form and mail it with your payment to the address on the form.  Download TVDSA membership form>

If you would like to receive our e-newsletter and be added to our mailing list, but don’t want to become a member at this time, email


Your online donation supports the TVDSA by helping us provide programs and education to families and advocate for those with disabilities.  Please consider donating online, utilizing the PayPal button at the bottom of this page.  Or if you would like to send a donation via U.S. Mail, please send to: TVDSA, PO Box 1404, Meridian ID 83680-1404.  A receipt may be sent upon request.
