Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona

Knows It's Fun to do Good!

We are dedicated to helping people with Down syndrome lead wonderful lives, filled with empowerment, love and hope.

We advocate for people with Down syndrome and support families in their journey to provide the most fulfilling lives for their children. We serve people with Down syndrome across the lifespan – from birth through adulthood.

Our Executive Director, Gina Johnson, founded our organization over thirty (30) years ago with five (5) families. Now, we have touched the lives of thousands through our programs and annual events. We are a support organization, first and foremost. Our services are FREE to families and we receive donations from grants and sponsors to fund what we do.

The mission of Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona is to educate and empower, but especially give hope to individuals who have Down syndrome so they may grow up to become independent self advocates.
We champion and celebrate ALL people who have Down syndrome throughout the lifespan. We support families in their care and advocacy efforts for the people in their lives with Down syndrome.

All of our programs and services are FREE to families. We receive funding through grants, donations, sponsorships and fundraisers.

We participate in the Arizona Tax Credit Program. Donations are eligible for the Arizona Tax Credit of up to $800/couple or $400/person. Our QCO Code is 20543.

EIN# for Sharing is 86-0822557
