I donate to the HHF with a monthly charitable donation because they support a variety of research to cure hearing loss and tinnitus. I am heavily invested in this research as I am personally affected by both. The HHF seeks out a variety of researchers who are working on these goals as both conditions are multifaceted and need various intervention experiments. Please consider supporting this worthy organization today.
As a member of the board, I am in awe of what this small, robust organization does to educate our society about Hearing Health. There are not many organizations and non-profits out there that put most of their money to use for actual research and programs as HHF does.
I've been blessed to be a part of this incredible organization for 4 years now. It is amazing what HHF has been able to do with such a small team and lean operations. Heroes of this small but mighty non profit include the researchers who volunteer to run scientific programs and vet grants, the scientists who dedicate their lives to better cures and treatments, the staff who wear many hats and the donors who generously support our mission.
**I chose advisor since executive is not available as a choice but I'm also a donor.
My wife and I have been a donor to HHF for many years. When we discovered our daughter was deaf, we searched for resources that would not only guide us through a complex educational system but also offered the best hope for a scientific discovery to help solve the problem. Both HHF and the New York League for the Hard of Hearing were invaluable resources for us. We are deeply indebted to both for all the guidance and direction and, more importantly, the hope they gave us that with proper funding and research there can be a cure for deafness in our lifetime.
Since its inception in 1958, the Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) has awarded more than 2,000 grants to support hearing and balance research. This research has led to discoveries, new technologies, and dramatic innovations that increase options for those living with hearing loss, as well as protecting those at risk. Its program to support seed-funding to new investigators is one of the few sources of funds to help emerging scientists establish their laboratories. With the potential for hearing restoration through regeneration biology, the scope of HHF research has expanded enormously through its Hearing Restoration Project. The third pillar program of the HHF is its Hearing Health Magazine, which consistently delivers excellent science journalism about hearing loss and tinnitus. The research articles provide the latest information from laboratories and clinics around the world, accompanied by human interest stories and news of interest to all readers, in print and online format. For all these reasons, the Hearing Health Foundation is a "great nonprofit!"
As an individual with Usher Syndrome, I applaud this organization's work for continuing to raise funds for underfunded research for more rarer conditions.
I think this is a wonderful organization that is doing some real cutting edge research. Hands up!
Review from Guidestar
I became associated with the HHF, within the past year. My daughter Blake who is now 2 years old was born with hearing loss and was implanted with cochlears which allows her to hear understand and learn speech. My wife and I felt that joining the board of the HHF would give us the ability to learn more about hearing loss and advocate for our daughter.
We recently chaired a fund raising event that we deemed very successful. And we. Luke not have been more impressed with the staff of the HHF who without we would not have been able to pull off the event. As of September I am happy to continue my role on the board as the Junior Board President.
I look forward to the future and being a valued member of the charity to help fund awareness and knee day find a cure for hearing loss
Pleas feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the HHF and how you cN be more involved.
Review from Guidestar
I started donating to the Hearing Health foundation back in 2012 when I became aware of their Hearing Restoration Project. I had never before seen such an organized effort toward curing hearing loss, so I was excited to be able to contribute towards such an important dream of mine.
Since donating, I have occasionally helped with promoting their fundraising events. All of them have been great successes and it has been gratifying to see that so many people want to see hearing loss cured in the future. I also like how they regularly have lectures and interviews with scientists participating in the Hearing Restoration Project. It's always nice to hear about their progress and see their research moving forward.
