Communication is our lifeline to the outside world. The work we do helps to break down communication barriers, whether it is through a face-to-face interaction or by incorporating assistive technology.
Some of the ways your gift will be put to work:
- Provide equipment for low income hard of hearing individuals so they can communicate with family, friends caregivers, and be productively engaged in the community
- Provide awareness and prevention education to youth and young adults to protect and preserve their hearing so that their futures are not compromised
- Provide highly skilled interpreters to facilitate communication so Deaf individuals will be able to enjoy weddings, ceremonies, events, lectures, arts and entertainment
- Help families with Deaf children learn critical skills in American Sign Language to be able to communicate effectively within the family and begin the all-important early learning development process
- Provide Hearing Loss Prevention programs for Alberta children and youth to ensure that they do not suffer from permanent noise induced hearing loss

Employee Matching Gifts
Many companies today demonstrate strong corporate social responsibility by supporting charitable organizations and encourage their employees to share this responsibility through donor matching programs. Donor matching multiplies the value of your gift and therefore multiplies the ability to impact and make a difference in our community.
Check with your company’s Human Resources department to see if they offer an employee matching gifts program. If they don’t, ask your company to initiate this as part of its charitable giving strategy. If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to Deaf & Hear Alberta along with your donation.
Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduation: turn your personal celebration into a memorable party by giving to Deaf & Hear Alberta. Whether it’s a 50th birthday party, a 25th wedding anniversary, or a grandchild’s graduation, consider a donation in lieu of asking your guests for gifts.
Your guests will appreciate their monetary gift going to support a young Deaf student learning to read English, provide interpreting at a ceremony for a Deaf person, or equip a senior with personal listening equipment so they too can enjoy the special events in their lives.
