Grants Chair MJ Bienvenu announces the 2017 Grant application now available for $5,000 grant in the areas of arts, education, research, media, and activism.
Deafhood Foundation gives an annual grant to innovative projects led by Deaf people with their sponsoring Deaf-run non-profit organizations. The grants are given in the areas of arts, media, education, activism and research.
The research aspect would focus on those potential areas: language, economics, mental health, culture, science, and medicine all through the Deafhood lens. The Foundation also funds Deafhood Media Challenge where we invite innovative filmmaking efforts from the Deaf community.
Please see a list of our previous grantees which have included $10,000 funding to Deaf Women of Color’s “Climbing the Avalanche” documentary project, a series of Epic Jams by Deaf Spotlight, and others.
