NATIONAL PHILANTHROPIES

American Society for Deaf Children is a partnership underneath the Delta Zeta National Philanthropy of Speech and Hearing. Delta Zeta supports the society through fundraising efforts and our members who volunteer at various events. In 2022, we have so far held a successful Valentine's bake sale and have an upcoming event of thrifting where sustainability and fundraising is the goal.

 

The American Society for Deaf Children's mission is to allocate resources and opportunities to children who are deaf, and their families. The donations gives the organization the ability to fund ASL lessons, fingerspelling lessons, and more.
