The USDB Education Foundation

The USDB Education Foundation provides support to Utah’s children who are deaf, blind, or deaf-blind in addition to the generous support from the taxpayers of Utah. The Utah legislature provides funding to cover the basics for school activities at USDB, but sometimes the families of these unique children need a little more help. Hearing aids, glasses, white canes, unique technology and other learning opportunities can be provided with the support of the Foundation. USDB provides overhead and administrative resources for the Foundation, allowing 100% of donations to go directly to the children. This gives individuals, foundations, and corporations an opportunity to donate and make a real difference in the life of a child.
