Support Our Mission

Your gift matters

Philanthropy is the keystone upon which efforts to advance Down syndrome research will turn. In the current research environment, individual philanthropy plays the critical role in advancing innovative projects to a stage where further development may be supported by sources such as the National Institutes of Health.

Your gift will make a difference. With help from the families and the greater Down syndrome community, new drug therapies will be brought to market that will enable those with Down syndrome to achieve their true potential. There is hope for all with Down syndrome to enjoy greater intellectual abilities and more productive lives.

Donations can be made online through the School of Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University by following this donation link.  

For those making a gift via check, please make your check payable to Stanford University. In the memo line and in an accompanying note, indicate your gift is to support The Matthew Foundation Fund for Down Syndrome Advancement (GALWE). Mail checks to:
