Ways to support GiGi's Playhouse Gainesville


A donation of any amount will help us provide programs and awareness. 

Star_32Attend a fundraising event:

GiGi's Playhouse hosts various fundraisers throughout the year.  Events are publicized through Playhouse flyers, e-mail newsletters, and social media such as Facebook. Please make sure to subscribe to all our communications, and join us to celebrate our individuals and their families! See our upcoming events here 


Community lemonade stands, school dance-a-thons, wine tastings, driving range days, and exotic car shows are just some of the types of local events you can create to support our individuals with Down syndrome and the core programs they utilize every week. For more information on how to host a fundraising event for your local playhouse, please contact site coordinator at gainesville@gigisplayhouse.org.

Star_32Naming Sponsorships:

Honor a loved one or someone special in your life by sponsoring a Learning Lab—the educational rooms we use for Literacy and Math tutoring. Individual, family, foundation or business names will be prominently displayed outside the Learning Lab on a special sign as sponsors. Anonymous sponsorships are also available. Funds from room naming sponsorships will be used to help individuals participating in our core educational programs. Naming sponsorships are available for one year, multi-year, and ongoing frequencies. Please contact your local site coordinator for regarding sponsorship levels and availability at gainesville@gigisplayhouse.org.

321 ChampionsStar_32

Three.Two.One.  321 is a special number around GiGi's Playhouse because children & adults with Down syndrome have a third copy of their 21st chromosome.  Because GiGi's exists to educate, inspire and believe in individuals with Down syndrome, we are seeking "321 Champions" to donate $21 a month to support GiGi's Playhouse Gainesville.

Star_32Host a supply drive to benefit the playhouse:

Our programs require various supplies and materials including markers, crayons, colored pencils, white boards, cork boards, toys, puzzles, memory games, and more. Our business operations also require office supplies such as stamps, printer toner, copy paper, and more. We also need to keep the playhouse clean, and need supplies such as paper towels, cleaning supplies, garbage bags and more. Please contact gainesville@gigisplayhouse.org to learn about any “hot items” that are needed by the playhouse, and please consider creating a supply drive with your family, friends, local schools, co-workers and especially local businesses to support your local playhouse!

Star_32Employee and workplace giving:

Similar to the Champion’s Circle, you can dedicate a very small portion of your paycheck to benefit GiGi’s Playhouse. Your human resources representative or your payroll administrator can assist you with this process. Does your company MATCH employee giving? If they do, you can DOUBLE your impact! Inquire with your employer if they provide matching gifts. If they do not, ask if they would be open to a quarterly matching program such as Jeans Day.
