Heart for Hearing and Speech

Delta Zeta members participate in philanthropy because it changes lives. The lives of Delta Zetas are changed through giving; which in turn changes the lives of humanitarians and the charitable organizations with whom we partner, and the lives of those who benefit from our mutual efforts.

As the only global women’s organization with a focus on hearing and speech, we use our philanthropy to protect hearing, raise awareness of Deaf culture and American Sign Language and provide the opportunity of speech therapy and hearing aids to people in search of those resources. Hearing and speech have been our philanthropy focus since 1954. And now, thanks to our partnerships with Starkey Hearing Foundation and American Society for Deaf Children we can see the difference we are making here in the United States and around the world.

In 2020, we hit our goal to raise $5,000,000 in five years for the Starkey Hearing Foundation. We are excited to continue our Heart for Hearing and Speech efforts, now supporting both Starkey Hearing Foundation and American Society for Deaf Children.
