what's our action plan?

Our fundraising is primarily through word of mouth (initially from friends and family and informal gatherings.)  In the future, as our accomplishments grow and as we learn more about the needs of children who benefit from cochlear implanted, we expect to apply for grants from institutions and other charities.

As for distribution, the money we raise is donated through grant making or donor agreements to other foundations and charities.  We are also able to  provide direct aid to address the needs of the children, by way of stipends to the children and families.   

Our Mission is to focus on the children post implant. The surgical part  of the cochlear implant process is a medical matter and outside the scope of our activities. We begin our activities after the the child has been implanted. That is when we see the most care being needed and when the  child literally needs to be taught how to hear, what to hear, how to process the sounds, how to speak and how to interact with peers all of  which enables the child to function seamlessly in the “mainstream.”  There are numerous studies that support this result.  

Please see our President's Report (May, 2020)  of our accomplishments.
