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, fill out the online membership form at the link below to become a new member or to renew an existing membership.

TVDSA Membership Form

Pay your membership fee online when submitting the online form. If you need to submit and pay a membership by mail, contact us at for additional information.
