Philanthropy
How YOU can give graciously…
Service to others is an essential part
             of Delta Zeta.
  “To those whom my life may touch in slight
                   measure,
             May I give graciously
               Of what is mine”
                           The Delta Zeta Creed
Philanthropy means generosity—
  giving through service to help
             others.
Our national philanthropies are
supported by both collegiate and
       alumnae chapters.
Delta Zeta’s national focus on
    philanthropy supports:
     Speech and Hearing
             and
  The Painted Turtle camp
Isn’t Gallaudet University our national
             philanthropy?
  No. We support Gallaudet University,
  House Ear Institute, The Starkey Hearing
   Foundation, and the Sound Beginnings
            Program under our
    Speech and Hearing philanthropy.
      They are our partners, not our
               philanthropy.

  Sound Beginnings Program
―Alone we can’t do much. But, together we
          can change the world.‖
      –William F. Austin, Founder
         www.sotheworldmayhear.org
• Partnership was announced at the 2006
  National Convention
• 20,000 hearing aids delivered annually to those
  in financial need through more than 150 hearing
  missions a year
• Hear Now is a national, non-profit program
  assisting deaf and ―hard of hearing‖ individuals
  in the United States with limited financial
  resources by collecting hearing aids for recycling
  purposes.
• The camp is a member of the Association of Hole in the Wall
  Camps co-founded by Paul Newman.
• The only multi-disease medical camp of its kind of the West
  coast.
• Mission: To provide a year-round, life-changing
  environment for children with chronic and life-threatening
  illnesses.
• For campers, being surrounded by others who have the
  same disease is a normalizing and empowering experience.
 Sound Beginnings Program
• Delta Zeta’s national philanthropic project
  is in its fourth year.
• Goal: Educate parents on the importance of
  timely follow-up activities if their infant does not
  pass the newborn hearing screening.
• How: Provide doctors’ offices with Sound
  Beginnings educational brochures and videos.
• Why? Nationally, 50% of infants who fail the
  infant hearing screening do not receive follow-up
  testing. Help decrease that percentage!
• Myth: Our state mandates hearing testing so the
  Sound Beginnings Program is not applicable to
  us.
• Fact: Our materials are about the importance of
  FOLLOW-UP testing for parents whose children
  fail the hearing screening. This program can
  make a difference in all 50 states!
        “IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FOLLOW-UP”
• Partnership since 1985
• Located in Los Angeles, California
• Delta Zeta’s first project for the Institute was
  the furnishing of a parents' conference room.
• Donations provide funds for research and
  clinical services in the Children's Auditory and
  Research Center.
• Since 1985, Delta Zeta members have raised
  over half a million dollars for the Institute's
  mission!
Gallaudet University
 • Partnership since 1954
 • Located in Washington, D.C.
 • World’s only university with undergraduate
   programs accessible to deaf and hard-of-
   hearing students.
