The Trisomy 21 Program

Support the Trisomy 21 Program

The Trisomy 21 Program is the one of the most prominent multidisciplinary clinics serving children and adults with Down syndrome. Your gift to the clinic ensures that we can continue to provide excellent care to individuals of all ages with Down syndrome throughout the region.

Your gift can be designated for the support and growth of our clinical activities, research efforts, or for the Trisomy 21 Endowed Support Fund to provide perpetual support to the clinic. Gifts can be made in honor or memory of an individual you wish to recognize.

Other ways you can help

The Trisomy 21 Program is funded by donations from individuals, foundations, corporations and fundraising events.

The largest fundraising event is The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Buddy Walk® and Family Fun Day, an annual event since 2001.

The Buddy Walk and Family Fun Day celebrate the lives of individuals with Down syndrome while promoting acceptance and inclusion. In just 10 years, this event has raised more than $2 million dollars for the Trisomy 21 Program at CHOP. For more information about the Buddy Walk, see our upcoming events.

By working together we can make this wonderful event even more successful. Come and be a part of this and other fabulous events, or host an event of your own.

For further information on hosting your own event, visit Gift of Childhood - Event Planning.

We thank you for your support.
