Thank you for taking an interest in making a donation to the Paediatric Cochlear Implant Program at The Hospital for Sick Children. Every donation will go directly towards helping children receive a cochlear implant, or towards research to improve cochlear implants, cochlear implant surgery, or the quality of life of individuals who use cochlear implants.
There are several areas where donations can be directed to.
The Cochlear Implant Education Fund.
This fund allows the staff to go to conferences and take courses to improve their skills. This is also the general fund we use to finance our extra-curricular activities (picnic, skating, sweatshirts, teen group etc.)
The Cochlear Implant Lab Fund.
These funds are directed towards research in the laboratory and to fund students interested in studying the cochlear implant and how it affects the lives of our kids.
The Nalli Family Fund.
This fund is used to fund our annual speaker (the Thursday in the week of Valentine's day). The family donated this money in loving memory of Vita and Stephanie. They wanted the money to go to enrich the lives of our implantees by raising the level of knowledge and awareness about paediatric implants in our community.
The Lauren Nayman Fund.
This fund was started by Sol and Queenie Nayman, Lauren's grandparents, in celebration of her and her heroism. The money is used for supplies (teaching stuff, toys, computer software) that are used in therapy and are not covered by the capital budget.
The Cochlear Implant Equipment Fund.
This fund was started by Dr. Papsin (from sales of his CD). He wanted to make sure that kids with implants who could not afford equipment (or opportunities) got the chance.
