About Us

Use What You Have

We each have a role to play in creating community.

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.

We raise awareness

Together

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.

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!
