Support the Annual Fund

Each year, Sertoma raises funds to support our scholarships, community grants, SAFEEars!®, A Sound Investment, and other hearing health programs. Over the past ten years, the Annual Fund has provided over 800 scholarships, more than $1,000,000 in grants, and provided information to more than 300,000 individuals on how to protect their hearing.

The Communicative Disorders Scholarship supports graduate students pursuing degrees in audiology or speech-language pathology from institutions within the United States. Sertoma awards 50 $1,000 scholarships each year. Sertoma provides more funds nationally, for graduate students studying communicative disorders, than any other single organization.

The Hard of Hearing or Deaf Scholarship supports undergraduate students, attending a four-year college or university, who have clinically significant bilateral hearing loss. Sertoma awards 50 $1,000 scholarships each year.

In addition, Sertoma awards approximately $100,000 in Community Grants to organizations that belong to the national Adopt-An-Agency program. These organizations, also known as affiliates, are nonprofit hearing health organizations that have established a relationship with a Sertoma club or have an independent relationship with Sertoma. Community Grants are awarded for any amount between $2,500 and $5,000, for a hearing related program, project, or equipment.

Proceeds raised this year are set aside to be given away next fiscal year. Anyone can give any amount to the Annual Fund.
