Organizations Devoted to Advancing Hearing Health

  1. 1. Organizations Devoted to Advancing Hearing Health You want to help people struggling with hearing loss, but the choice of charities is tremendous. Selecting which charities to support financial is based on several factors including the cause itself, the reputation of the organization and the intended use of the funds. You can become a part of one of many national and international charity organizations that lend their time and resources to helping those in need of better hearing health. Hearing Loss Association of America – The largest organization dedicated to helping people with hearing loss is the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA). The Association works to provide access, support, and assistance to those with hearing loss and their families. HLAA also strives to help the public through legislation and awareness. Take your first steps to helping this organization by visiting their website at www.hearingloss.org to sign up for one of the nation’s largest walks for hearing health, become an official member of the organization, or make a donation. Starkey Hearing Foundation – Starkey Hearing Foundation is a national and international organization that offers three programs for hearing needs: Hear Now, Listen Carefully, and Hearing Aid Recycling. Hear Now provides financial assistance to U.S. residents in need of hearing aids. Listen Carefully is an educational program aimed at young people to educate them about the harm that loud noise and headphone use can cause. Anyone can donate new and used hearing aids to the Hearing Aid Recycling program, which gives them to people in need. Visit the Starkey Hearing Foundation website at www.starkeyhearingfoundation.org for more details about each individual program or to make a donation.

  2. 2. Hearing Health Foundation – Collette Baker Ramsey, a woman who suffered from hearing loss herself, created Hearing Health Foundation in the 1950s. This organization fosters research to treat and cure hearing loss and promotes the prevention of hearing conditions through public education. One of the current endeavors of the foundation is providing research meant to cure tinnitus (constant ringing in the ears). If you wish to contribute to Hearing Health Foundation, there are several ways to help. You can make any cash donations or contribute gifts in the form of stock. You can write and share a personal experience with hearing loss, assist in fundraising, and even name a research grant. Visit their website at www.hearinghealthfoundation.org for more information, news and updates.
