Ways To Help

Thank You for Your Interest
in Supporting DSAMT!

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!

Caleb Thompson Golf Tournament

The DSAMT golf tournament honors Caleb Thompson, who in 2004, at 18-months old, lost a hard-fought battle with AVSD, a heart defect common in children with Down syndrome. This tournament has grown year after year, and we are striving to be the premiere charity golf event in Middle TN. Funds raised at this tournament support critical programming at DSAMT, especially our Sunshine program, which provides support to families who are in the hospital.
