About this funder:



Dorothy E. Ann Fund (D.E.A.F.)

The Dorothy E. Ann Fund (D.E.A.F.) was created in March 1997 to address the needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing youth. A comprehensive assessment of those needs indicated that community agencies, schools, professionals, and associations that work with this population do not always have the resources available to assist and support their clients and members.

This fund promotes hands-on experiences where youth who are deaf or hard of hearing can develop skills and values necessary for successful careers, including leadership training, goal setting, self-esteem building, and interpersonal and communication skills, thereby enhancing participation in their education, family, and community.  

Traditional Grants
Focus: Support to organizations serving children and youth who are deaf or hard of hearing.
