Land Purchase | $100,000 GOAL
DSH has tentatively laid claim to a 29 acre parcel of land in Niota, TN, as the site of the first housing community for adults with Down syndrome. Our $100,000 goal includes the price for the purchase of the property as well as estimated closing costs and legal fees.
Engineering/Architectural Design | $100,000 GOAL
Before construction can even begin, it is necessary that our building site undergo all necessary engineering studies and site surveys. We will also be hiring an architectural firm to conceive and develop the design of this first housing community. The goal established for this aspect of development includes all costs associated with the above mentioned services.
Executive Level Donation | $50,000
Whether you’re a company, organization or individual, we believe that giving at this level deserves some special recognition. And it should be the type of recognition that will stand the test of time. With that said, when a company, organization, group or individual contributes to DSH at this level, the name of the contributor(s) will go on a special plaque and be placed in the main office of this first Down Syndrome Housing community. Visitors and potential residents will forever know that you stood by us in our effort to provide a loving, caring and safe environment for adults with Down syndrome.
Every Donation Helps
We understand that some may feel they cannot make a difference in helping us reach our goals because they may be only able to afford a small donation. And unfortunately, we cannot provide incentives or recognition for all donation levels.But just as those with Down syndrome are special despite their disability, a donation of any size given from the heart gets us one step closer to our goal regardless of its size. Whether it’s $50,000 or $50, please know that we are very appreciate of all monetary support, and thank you for being willing to be a part of our dream and vision.
