Rosemarie Baumgartner Society

In 2010, the DSAGSL received a bequest, our first, from the estate of Joan Baumgartner.  Made in honor of her sister with Down syndrome, Rosemarie, Joan’s gift ensure the future of the DSAGSL and the individuals we serve.  We are honored to name our planned giving society after Rosemarie and her sister’s legacy.  

Planned gifts come in many forms and can be made during or after your lifetime.  When you consider a planned gift to the DSAGSL, you will join Ms. Baumgartner in paving a path for generations of individuals with Down syndrome for years to come.  

The goal of planned giving is to help you plan your estate and charitable giving in a way that benefits you, your family, and charity.  This table is a quick overview of planned giving options.

If you are considering making a planned gift to DSAGSL, please contact Executive Director, Erin Suelmann at 314.961.2505 or
