Kansas School for the Deaf Endowment Association

The Kansas School for the Deaf is a state funded school serving deaf children throughout Kansas. With state dollars shrinking, the school depends on contributions to meet many of the special needs of our students. Established in 1970, the Kansas School for the Deaf Endowment Association provides support for Deaf students' individual and programing needs. Through countless projects, both large and small, the association has enriched the lives of hundreds of Deaf children. The Endowment Association continues to work toward its vision of generating sufficient resources to support the needs of our students.
