Community Sponsorships

“Over these past 10 years, the CSD SDC has become the heart of campus life at RIT/NTID. The facility provides space for leadership opportunities that are essential for our students’ success. We are grateful to CSD for their visionary generosity, and look forward to future collaborations.”
– Gerard Buckley, NTID President and RIT Vice President and Dean.

CSD invests in the community.

CSD is always looking to support innovative ideas, programs, and organizations supporting the Deaf community. The most likely investments to get funded are those aligning with CSD’s mission, values, and goals. Before filling out the sponsorship application, visit Who We Are.

What should I expect?

CSD receives more requests each year than we can fund. The sponsorship application is an opportunity to provide details about your idea or program.

Once the application is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation. Your application will go through an initial screening process within seven days.  If it meets our initial requirements, your application will be reviewed by an internal team to determine final acceptance.  In most cases, you should receive a response within 30 business days.
