Are you looking for a different way to change the lives of individuals with Down syndrome across North Central WI? Then consider helping us fill GiGi's Playhouse Wausau with all the love, tools, toys, and supplies we need to educate and inspire our families.


GiGi’s Playhouse programs are free to families, but they are not free to execute. We depend on the generosity of the community for many of our operational needs. A wish list gift will enable children and adults to benefit from the FREE programs offered to GiGi’s Playhouse families each and every day. Your investment, beyond monetary donations, will make an even bigger impact on the people who will utilize our purposeful programs and benefit from positive support for those with all kinds of abilities.
