Our kids need you!

The Grand Rapids Oral Deaf program is a public school.  And with continuous budget cuts in education, we rely on our active Parent Teacher Organization to raise funds to provide additional programming.  All contributions go directly to programs that positively impact our children.  Additional funds raised make it possible to provide special audiology equipment, purchase books for our literacy library, fund the preschool music program, offset costs for additional teacher training, and furnish playground equipment, among other needs. 

We are a non-profit with 501(c)(3) status and your contribution is tax deductable.
