The RID legacy Fund represents an investment in the future of RID by honoring and holding tight to the core values that rooted the organization back in 1964–including member commitment and contribution.

Now, as we have passed our 50 year anniversary, the RID Legacy Fund is a way to ensure that RID preserves our collective wisdom and historical core values through the work of the Councils (i.e., Deaf Advisory Council, Council of Elders, and Diversity Council); Board of Editors for our publications; and other leadership initiatives impacting the ongoing vision of the organization.

It also will ensure that we apply this counsel to our day-to-day operations by reframing the role, responsibilities, and structure of our headquarters staff.

Your ongoing financial commitment to the RID Legacy Fund will secure your place as a Founding Legacy Holder.
