A New Approach to Community Support

We are excited to share some important updates about our membership model. As part of our commitment to making TDI accessible to everyone, we will be transitioning to a donation-based model. Our goal is to foster an environment where everyone may benefit from our mission and resources.

Why the Change?

We believe access to TDI’s resources and support should be available to all. By transitioning away from a membership fee, we aim to eliminate any barriers that prevent individuals from joining our community. Instead of a traditional membership-based model, we are shifting to a donation-based model. This change allows TDI to be more inclusive and invites everyone to access our resources and support. We believe this transition encourages a spirit of generosity and collective responsibility among our stakeholders and community members. By focusing on donations, we can continue to grow and expand our efforts to foster accessibility and inclusion for everyone in information and communication technology (ICT).

Since 1968, TDI has been the leading organization fostering accessibility and inclusion in ICT for the deaf and hard of hearing communities. Our core mission remains steadfast in advocating for these communities; however, our goal is to expand our unique community by inviting stakeholders and consumer organizations involved with ICT to join our mission.

Your contributions and support make TDI’s impact stronger as we advocate for policy, regulations, and legislation to ensure accessibility for all individuals with disabilities. We collaborate with industry stakeholders, policymakers, and advocacy organizations who share our mission and believe in the power of communication equity. This collaboration expands our impact to include all our valued supporters who help TDI reach more lives. It’s a crucial time to broaden our reach as technology evolves rapidly, impacting accessibility to ICT in health, education, employment, media, and virtual communication platforms.

Acknowledging Our Loyal Supporters

We want to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude to our long-standing supporters. Your loyalty and dedication to TDI have been invaluable. You have played a crucial role in our journey, and we are deeply proud to have you as part of our community. You remain valuable stakeholders, and we look forward to continuing our work together to create a more accessible and inclusive world.
