When you help DSAMT, you’re not just changing the life of one individual or even just changing the lives of those with Down syndrome. You’re helping the entire Middle Tennessee community.
We support inclusion and acceptance in our community, schools, churches, the workforce - everywhere! We help the community better understand the extraordinary gifts that those with "something extra" bring to our lives and to our communities, and, in doing so, we improve the lives of everyone. We’re glad you’re here to help!
The Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee (DSAMT) organizes the The Extra Mile (SM) to celebrate and support individuals with Down syndrome and their families and to promote understanding and acceptance of those with Down syndrome. The Extra Mile will be the largest Down syndrome awareness event in the state and our primary source of funding for our programs.
Support your loved one with Down syndrome by getting a Down Syndrome Awareness license plate. ONLY $35 more than what you already pay, and half that extra money goes to statewide advocacy efforts
Celebrate someone with Down syndrome, while supporting DSAMT. All purchased items help support our mission.
Support businesses who donate a portion of your purchases to support the important programs at DSAMT.
There are many businesses that are owned or operated by individuals who have Down syndrome, employ them or give a portion of their proceeds to the Down syndrome community. Please consider supporting these businesses.
There are many different types of volunteer activities at DSAMT. Most of the wonderful programs, social events, camps, and workshops rely on support from the community.
We can always use gift cards, diapers, gift bag stuffers, unique silent auction items, and food and beverage for events. Contact Alecia if there is something you'd like to donate that's not listed.
