Host a Fundraiser

Many wonderful people in the community organize third party fundraising events to benefit the Up Side of Downs.  A third party fundraiser is a company, organization or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit USOD.  We are grateful for every dollar raised through these events – they help the Up Side of Downs provide programs and services to more than 900 families in Northeast Ohio touched by Down syndrome and the countless professionals who serve them.

The Up Side of Downs encourages third party events (i.e. golf outings, 5K/10K runs, spaghetti dinners, etc).  As an event organizer, we ask that interested individuals contact our Executive Director to discuss your program details.   USOD has put together a Fundraising Playbook, which will help you plan your event and provides some guidelines for your fundraiser.

If you are interested in organizing an event that benefits the Up Side of Downs, please contact our Executive Director.
