Down Syndrome Association of Heartland receives $2,100 match from Give 270

As part of a special World Down Syndrome Day fundraiser, Give 270 made a $2,100 match to Down Syndrome Association of the Heartland (DSAH). The match gift ended on World Down Syndrome Day (March 21), a global awareness day that has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. 

The amount was inspired by the Down syndrome marker, an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. 

Funds raised will be used to support individuals with Down syndrome - as well as their families, friends, caregivers, teachers, and coworkers - in Central Kentucky, including Hardin, Grayson, LaRue, Breckinridge, Meade, Nelson and Hart counties. 

Funding will be used for the following services:

  1. Providing resources for families experiencing a new Down syndrome diagnosis.
  2. Offering weekly and monthly services for individuals with Down syndrome (ex. cooking class, art class, etc.).
  3. Supply regional classrooms with inclusive books.
  4. Raise awareness about Down syndrome in the region.

Give 270 presented the proceeds check at DSAH's ribbon cutting for their new facility.

To support DSAH, individuals, organizations and businesses are encouraged to text TheLuckyFew to 269-89 or visit

DSAH supports individuals with Down syndrome and their loved ones through celebrating, educating, advocating and serving. This includes resources for families following a new Down syndrome diagnosis at birth as well as ongoing education opportunities such as cooking classes for young adults, art classes, group therapy opportunities and more. In addition to the classes, DSAH brings families together through events and ongoing support services.
