Introducing the Nyle DiMarco Foundation

The Deaf community has always been there for me. I would not have come close to achieving the level of success I’ve had without the community’s support. Now it’s time for me to give back through the Nyle DiMarco Foundation. The Foundation’s goal is to make the world a better place for all Deaf people and their families. Through partnerships, we will provide resources that empower Deaf individuals to achieve their dreams. Please take a moment to browse this site and learn more about the Foundation. Lastly, I want to ask you to join me in "Throwing a Kiss," and make a donation. We cannot achieve our goals without your love and support.
