Corporate Partnership and Sponsor Information

Dear Corporate & Community Relations Director, 

Welcome to CCDSIG’s 21st year of celebrating the Upside of Down Syndrome!  The Chester County Down Syndrome Interest Group (CCDSIG) is a nonprofit organization that began in 1998 with a group of parents who wanted to meet for social contact and support. Today our goals include reaching out to new families, providing educational and social opportunities for our existing members, and educating the community in order to promote awareness and inclusion of persons with Down syndrome. 

Our Mission is all about the UPSIDE of Down syndrome. 

  • Unite all members, including people with Down syndrome, their families, friends and acquaintances
  • Provide outreach to new families, give them information, networking opportunities and support
  • Supply a means of social interaction for all members
  • Inform families of current research and topics of interest regarding Down syndrome
  • Develop community and educational programs to empower individuals with Down syndrome
  • Educate the community to increase awareness, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome

CCDSIG is a grassroots organization and we are always looking for new ways to improve our process and create more opportunities for our families. Did you know the CCDSIG was recently featured in Main Line Today and MetroKids? We are extremely proud of our founder and president, Elaine Scott.  We would not be where we are today without her! 

As you know, the Buddy Walk & Family Run & Fun Day is our biggest event and fundraiser of the year with over 1000 people in attendance. We are thrilled to announce our 2019 CCDSIG Family Run & Fun Day and Buddy Walk will be held on Sunday, October 13th at West Goshen Community Park, West Chester, PA. Once again, the activities will kick off with our 3rd annual 3.21 Go Run 5k and Fun Run followed by our 19th Annual Buddy Walk. 

This year, sponsors have even more ways to support the CCDSIG. Your company can sponsor a carnival game, food truck, sound system, entertainment, pony rides, inflatable zone, new 3.21 Go Run medals, event t-shirts, the 5k, the fun run, and even more.  Contact buddywalk@ccdsig.org for more information. 

Some of the benefits of corporate sponsorship include:

  • Your company name/logo on the event t-shirt that all attendees will receive.
  • Your company’s business information (pamphlets, cards, etc.) included in swag bags.
  • Your company featured in an article & your company profile in CCDSIG newsletter, social media pages, and newly designed website.
  • Your company name or logo on the newly designed CCDSIG website (launching March 21st) and on our event pages (social media sites, Family Fun Day page, registration page).
  • Your company name or logo on individual signage prominently displayed for the top-level sponsors.
  • A company booth with a 6 foot table and 2 chairs under a tent at our event.
  • Most importantly, the opportunity to be part of a wonderful community event focused on public awareness and inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome. 

Remember, Your sponsorship provides funding for CCDSIG’s local community outreach - education, training, scholarships & activity funding - and partner organizations including The ARC of Chester County, Special Olympics, Bournelyf Special Camp, Adaptive PE programs at West Chester University, inclusive programs at schools & universities, Best Buddy programs as well as the important work of the National Down Syndrome Society.
