Memorial Fund Information


The mission of the CODA Memorial Fund is to honor the memory of hearing individuals with Deaf parents, who have passed away.  Donations are also welcome in memory of those persons (hearing or Deaf) who have been supporters of CODA International, whether or not they are from Deaf parented families.  Donations made to the Memorial Fund are specifically used to provide waivers to Codas who would like to attend a CODA International Conference.  This would provide financial support to Codas who find the associated cost of the Conference registration fee a barrier to their ability to attend.

A virtual Memorial Room is maintained on the CODA International web site where all persons honored through donations are named.  A minimum donation of $25.00 USD is requested.  Once the information form and the donation have been received, the honoree’s name will be added to the list on the web site.

The information form and donations to have a person recognized through the Memorial Fund can be accessed through the CODA International web site (  Payment is preferred through the website or by mailing the completed form with a check made out to CODA International at the following address:
