About Us

Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action is a nonprofit trade association serving Down syndrome associations. DSAIA represents more than 1,000 leaders in the Down syndrome community from over 80 organizations.

DSAIA's purpose continues to be to serve our affiliates through collaboration, resource sharing, and networking.  View a webinar explaining the many benefits of joining the Trade Association.  

DSAIA will make available for public inspection the last three years of its tax documents, including Internal Revenue Service Forms 990. Copies will be provided within 30 days of the request. The requestor may be charged a reasonable fee for the cost of copying and postage.

DSAIA abides by our Donor Bill of Rights and the only time we share our member contact information is when we are pursuing a fundraising partnership that will benefit DSA affiliates.

DSAIA members may request a copy of the latest balance sheet as well as minutes of board meetings.

We are incredibly proud of our growth and results in 2017.   However, none of this could have been possible without support from DSAIA....the membership has been necessary for past successes, and will continue to prove vital for future growth.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        -Dawn Neuffer, Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin
