Zoom + Sisters = Zisterhood
Zoom meetings would not be as fun, if it weren’t for our sisters.
We raise funds through HEART FOR HEARING AND SPEECH
Our members know how to care. We simply created a program to channel their compassion and direct their energies toward a shared ideal – make life better for others. Heart for Hearing and Speech is the theme for our personal philanthropy and chapter events designed to raise money and awareness in support of our philanthropy partners who are making a difference the world over.
Starkey Hearing Foundation
In 2015, Delta Zeta named Starkey Hearing Foundation our National Philanthropy Partner in an effort to extend our impact throughout the world. We pledged to raise $5 million over the next five years for hearing and speech, and to donate that amount to Starkey Hearing Foundation. In 2020, Delta Zeta successfully completed the pledge! Since the partnership began, Delta Zeta has raised over $5.5 million dollars for Starkey!
We raise awareness
Heart for Hearing and Speech Day coincides with the start of Better Hearing and Speech Month in May, which is a national effort to raise awareness about communications disorders and the need for improved global hearing health. We spend the first Tuesday in May telling our friends and family about the world’s most prevalent chronic health condition and asking for their support in addressing it.
Seriousfun Children’s Network
As our Global Service Project, SeriousFun’s mission is to create opportunities for children and their families to reach beyond serious illness and discover joy, confidence and a new world of possibilities, always free of charge.
American Society for Deaf Children
To broaden our domestic impact through awareness and education and provide more ways for members to connect with our philanthropy, in 2020 Delta Zeta announced a partnership with the American Society for Deaf Children.
