The Texas School for the Deaf Foundation (TSDF) raises funds to help bridge the gap between the Texas Legislature’s biennial budget allocation to TSD and what is needed to provide excellent education services for deaf and hard of hearing children of Texas. Our funding enhances learning opportunities for young children up to 22 years of age, in addition to providing educational outreach to families in 87 Texas counties through the Statewide Outreach Center (SOC).

We invite you and your business to join us in making a greater financial impact at TSD by coming on board as a donor, attendee and/or volunteer for our Diamonds & Denim Gala 2022.

The highlight of the event will feature TSD’s Culinary Arts and Hospitality students working under the direction of a professional chef and an executive catering staff as they provide a delightful gourmet dining experience.

Your support will impact the lives of 7,000 deaf and hard of hearing Texas children. Including:
• 550 students from across Texas who attend school at TSD.
• 70% of whom qualify for free and reduced lunch; and
• 43% of whom live on campus and commute home on the weekends.
