A small group of dedicated parents founded DSAMN more than 35 years ago. They saw the need to provide support and resources. They saw the potential in all individuals with Down syndrome. They created an organization with a vision for all people with Down syndrome to achieve their fullest potential in an accepting and inclusive society. They left behind a legacy. You can too.

Transferring stock is an excellent way to support the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota. A gift of securities can provide significant benefits, including increased value for your gift to DSAMN and decreased cost to you; a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted securities; and elimination of capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you had sold the appreciated securities on the open market and donated the proceeds of the sale to DSAMN. To make a gift, please contact both Morgan Stanley and the Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota.
