Double Your Impact for Down Syndrome Awareness Month

There has never been a better time to advocate for those with Down syndrome!

At the Jerome Lejeune Foundation, our approach to advocacy is guided by the belief that each individual human being possesses inherent dignity and value, and that society has an obligation to uphold and respect that dignity. This is why we believe that President Trump has made an exceptional choice in nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacant seat left by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Judge Barrett has an outstanding track record of protecting the vulnerable and is the mother of an eight-year-old boy with Down syndrome named Benjamin.

The nomination of Judge Barrett has ushered in a new national dialogue about Down syndrome and caring for the vulnerable. We are working to educate the public and advocate for individuals with Down syndrome, bringing support to them and their families. Like Barrett, we recognize that those with Down syndrome are entitled to the same rights as others, starting with the right to life.

Your gift will be matched up to $50,000 through October 31!

In honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month, a generous donor has agreed to match all gifts up to $50,000. That means that every dollar you give during the month of October becomes two dollars towards helping someone with Down syndrome in the U.S.

By donating to the Jerome Lejeune Foundation, you will support our critical work of advocating and caring for those with Down syndrome and their families.

All or part of your gift to the Jerome Lejeune Foundation USA, a 501(c)(3) organization, may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Please check with your tax advisor. The Jerome Lejeune Foundation USA’s tax identification number is 45-2470997.
