Help make the Clarke experience possible for children who are deaf or hard of hearing

We rely on the support and generosity of many dedicated friends who believe in Clarke’s mission.

The Need for Clarke Services

Clarke provides children who are deaf or hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed and thrive in an environment that’s right for them. We level the playing field for children and expand their opportunities for inclusivity.

Clarke firmly believes that a family’s financial resources should not be a barrier to their child’s access to our programs and services. Many of the families we serve come from low-to-moderate income zip codes, as defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and are unable to afford out-of-pocket costs.

The Cost for Clarke Services

As a publicly funded private organization, Clarke’s programs and services are provided at no cost to families. To cover the gaps between tuition reimbursements and the true costs of our programs and services, financial support is raised from individuals, organizations and foundations who recognize the value of investing in the independent future of Clarke students.

Anecdotally, for every dollar Clarke spends on programs and services, we earn 80 cents in tuition, fees and program grants. These gaps are filled by generous supporters who recognize the value of investing in the independent future of Clarke students. Your support has an enduring value and makes an impact that will last Clarke students and their families for a lifetime.

Hear the Impact

Contact us today and arrange a virtual visit to a Clarke site and ask Clarke students firsthand what Clarke means to them. Contact the Clarke Development Office at 413.584.3450.
