The Nyle DiMarco Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists as a national philanthropic resource for all organizations, institutions and individuals working to improve the lives of every Deaf person in the world.
Current Priority Area: Deaf Children and their Families
The Foundation aims to improve access to accurate, research-based information about early language acquisition–specifically, the bilingual education approach. Through the early intervention process, the child’s language and literacy development should be the focal point.
Nyle and the Foundation are guided by the principle that every child deserves love and language.
Because the reality is that Deaf children can grow to be anything they want: firefighter or police officer, defense attorney or brain surgeon, elementary teacher or college professor, software developer or the creator of the next major social media outlet–or even an internationally recognized supermodel, actor, and dancing phenom. The key to unlocking a Deaf child’s future is acquiring language at an early age.
Nyle’s story provides validation: he was born into a multigenerational Deaf family and was taught American Sign Language and English from birth.
Through the Foundation, Nyle wants to work with parents and families to ensure Deaf children receive the same opportunities he did.GO TO SITE
