Why give to MDHAC?

The mission of the Museum of Deaf History, Arts & Culture® (MDHAC) will advance and preserve knowledge about Deaf people, their languages, cultures, and experiences in the United States and around the world. Your donation, in any amount, is appreciated and beneficial in allowing us to continue furthering the goal of our mission.

Host a Personal Fundraiser

We invite you to host a fundraising event with family, friends, co-workers, and peers to help expand support for this cause. This is a great addition to special events such as birthdays, in lieu of gifts, or a special event at your school or company to direct your peers or participants to a cause you support. 


You may Fundraise for a Cause through Facebook or send us a list of your collected gifts made payable to MDHAC.  If you have other ideas, please contact us!
