The Need Defined
Experience the joy of knowing that you are making a lifelong impact for a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. As a Clarke student learns to listen and talk, you will receive progress updates and be invited to visit the school so that you can see first-hand the impact of your support.
Though Clarke receives public funds to support the therapy and education we provide, anecdotally the gap between the cost of these services and the public funds received is typically $5,000 per child per year. Many of the children served by Clarke are from low-income families who don’t have the ability to address this gap.
Annual Giving Opportunities
When you commit to annual support and sponsorship you can help one or more children from the time they begin with Clarke, and have little or no language, to the time they speak in full sentences and prepare to transition to kindergarten! You may also choose to sponsor multiple children in one year. And by donating to build our endowment, you will make an even greater impact on Clarke’s ability to serve children for years to come.
