Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
We change lives through consistent delivery of almost 20 free educational and therapeutic-based programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community. Through these free programs and through our Generation G Campaign for global acceptance, GiGi’s Playhouse and its network of 58 Playhouses across the US and Mexico, empower families by maximizing opportunities for daily achievement and lasting acceptance. To ensure lasting acceptance, we must show the world what individuals with Down syndrome are truly capable of achieving as students, co-workers, volunteers, friends, and valued members of their communities. Our program outcomes help advance this vital social impact goal!
