You make a difference in the lives of children who are deaf/hard of hearing and blind/visually impaired.
From birth to 22 years of age, over 900 students currently have the opportunity to Do More, Be More and Achieve More because of generous philanthropic support of donors like you. Each contribution is a significant investment in the lifelong success of children who are deaf/hard of hearing or blind/visually impaired in Florida–those who participate in the boarding program on campus, those who go home every afternoon, and those we serve in their homes through the parent infant program.
The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB) is a public school. As part of the state education system, students attend at no cost. However, FSDB receives only what are called “general revenue funds.” No lottery dollars, no local property tax dollars – which all other public schools in the state receive. General funds through the state do provide the very basic costs of educating students, teacher and staff salaries, utilities, food and facilities upkeep.
You make FSDB academically, socially, and life enriching for students who are deaf/hard of hearing or blind/visually impaired. Your tax deductible donation provides indispensable programs for our students that otherwise would not be possible.
