Hearing Health Foundation, a national 501 (c)(3) organization, relies on contributions from individuals, foundations, companies and community groups, to fund our critical hearing research, education and awareness programs. Donations to Hearing Health Foundation are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Hearing Health Foundation’s Partner for Hearing Health program gives organizations the chance to contribute to our programs. Your partnership shows your clients, employees, and the general public that you support the mission and work of Hearing Health Foundation.
As a Partner for Hearing Health, your company will receive numerous benefits, while highlighting your commitment to better solutions for the nearly 1 in 5 Americans and 60% of returning veterans who have a hearing loss.
Below are the levels of support for the Partner for Hearing Health Program:

Here’s how it works:
Help us create a world where everyone has the opportunity to enjoy life without hearing loss and tinnitus.
Are you personally impacted by hearing loss?
Do you have a child or family member living with hearing loss?

Hearing Health Foundation’s special “Named Research Grants” Program enables a donor to fund an entire research project and name that specific research grant in their name or in honor or memory of a loved one.
For a minimum gift of $30,000, you can create your Hearing Health Foundation named research grant. For gifts between the amounts of $5,000 and $30,000, you can also partially name a grant and it will be recognized as a partial named grant. Many have done so to honor or to memorialize someone special to them.
Through a planned gift, you can have a meaningful, long-term impact on HHF’s future. You can also make a gift to HHF that pays you income for life, with a rate of return that’s guaranteed, regardless of market fluctuations. You can donate real estate, stocks and bonds, mutual funds, life insurance, personal property and other non-cash assets. Or you can simply remember HHF in your will. Below are some ways to make a planned gift:
When you remember Hearing Health Foundation in your estate plan, you can join Hearing Health Foundation’s legacy society called the “Baker Society.” Named after the founder of Deafness Research Foundation (now named Hearing Health Foundation) Collette Ramsey Baker, the Society is a special way to recognize our supporters who have made a special gift through their estate plans.
Our friends and supporters in our Baker Society have planned for gifts to HHF in their estates. Bequests qualify for unlimited charitable deduction, which can reduce your estate taxes and preserve more of your assets for family and other intended beneficiaries. If you would like to remember HHF in your will, here is suggested language:
“I bequeath (___%) or ($___) or (Specific Asset) of my estate to Hearing Health Foundation (Tax ID: 13-1882107) with a principal address of 363 Seventh Avenue, 10th Fl., New York, NY 10001.”
Let us know if you have remembered Hearing Health Foundation in your estate plan so that we may thank you and welcome you to the Baker Society. Those who may have already remembered us in their estate plans through our former name, Deafness Research Foundation, should know that their gift will still go to Hearing Health Foundation.
A Charitable Gift Annuity allows you to have a fixed income for life and, at the same time, support our vital research towards prevention and a cure for hearing loss. It is a unique way to make a gift – one that can increase your steady supplemental income, give you a substantial tax deduction, and lower the taxes on the monthly or quarterly payments you receive. You can make a charitable gift to the Hearing Health Foundation and, at the same time, receive monthly payments that are higher than you may already be receiving from other investments.
If you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need, you can designate HHF as the beneficiary of this existing policy and, as a result, make a considerably larger gift than you thought possible — larger than if you were to donate the cash equivalent of the policy’s premiums.
You can contribute securities or other appreciating assets to a Charitable Lead Trust. The trust makes annual payments to HHF for a period of time. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal is paid to your heirs.
A cure for hearing loss & tinnitus is possible in our lifetime!

Hearing Health Foundation participates in several workplace charity campaigns including the Combined Federal Campaign, state employee campaigns and several corporate campaigns.
Hearing Health Foundation is also a member of Network for Good, a nationwide network of charitable organizations that promote charitable giving through workplace giving campaigns.
Many employers will match gifts to Hearing Health Foundation dollar for dollar or even more — that means your donation to hearing programs could have double or triple the impact!
