Donations in lieu of gifts

We don’t expect gifts when we have a celebration but when was the last time you went to a party and didn’t bring a gift?  We all do it.

If you’re hosting a party or celebration with friends and family and you’d like to do something a little different, perhaps you would consider asking your guests to make a charitable donation in lieu of a gift. From birthday celebrations to anniversaries, graduations to retirements or even communions and confirmations – donations can be made in your name or at your special event and they are a fantastic way to give back and make a meaningful difference.

We can help you to let everyone know that you are raising funds to support the work of Down Syndrome Ireland by providing you with balloons and posters for your event.

To make it as easy as possible you can simply create an online fundraising page with iDonate or Facebook which you can then share with your family, friends, and colleagues to support your fundraising efforts.

Down Syndrome Ireland would love to share in your celebration so contact us today and let’s start planning. To find out more please call our Fundraising Manager, Lauren McCarthy on 086 197 5424 or
