Community Mobilization

We provide accessible resources to leaders addressing inequity in their own deaf communities. Help us understand your challenges and barriers.

What issues do we focus on?

We envision a future in which deaf communities have access to a wide array of services provided by thriving, well-resourced organizations.

Our priorities are shaped by those most affected by the issues impacting their deaf communities. We value the feedback and experiences of our partners. Please share your thoughts with us anytime!

What are we up to?

The Foundation is committed to providing capacity building support to organizations serving deaf communities. We disbursed COVID-19 Emergency Response funds in April 2021, and we will announce our next funding opportunity this Fall!
