11/14/16 NOTE: We are not currently accepting Adoption Grant Applications. We will reopen the application process in the near future.

The International Down Syndrome Coalition is offering grants to families that are in the process of domestically adopting children with Down syndrome.

Grants will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis for those whose applications have been approved by the IDSC. Approval is not guaranteed. Funds will be issued to adoption agencies or attorneys to be used for fees associated with adoption.

The IDSC reserves the right to verify each application is accurate and that the adoption is in process. 

To apply, please complete the below form. If you have questions, please contact us.

If you are interested in assisting families and would like to make a donation to the IDSC Adoption Grant program, please use the following link. Thank you for your consideration.
