Going above and beyond to give back to those in need of hearing.
We are proud supporters of Starkey Hearing Foundation. Founded in 1984, Starkey Hearing Foundation is dedicated to bringing hearing health care to those in need around the world. The Foundation provides complimentary hearing care to people, empowering them to achieve their full potential.
Every year, the Foundation’s global impact expands through the support of donors like our organization. Over the past 30 years the Foundation has grown dramatically and is now working actively in more than 100 countries. It provides a broad range of hearing health care services and hearing aids to individuals. The Foundation also has developed educational programs to train local hearing health care service providers to serve their communities in the future. In 2017 alone, more than 120,000 hearing aids and more than 250,000 hearing health care services were provided at no charge to people in need. Since its inception, more than 1 million hearing health care services have been provided through the Foundation’s programs.
Our Audiologist, Tom Todd, was honored to be a part of a Starkey Hearing Foundation 2012-2013 mission trip. Tom volunteered his services and expertise, providing hearing testing and fitting hearing aids to adults and children in Piedras Negras and Mexico City, Mexico. Through the efforts of Starkey Hearing Alliance audiologists like Tom, the Foundation was able to give the gift of hearing to more than 7,400 hearing impaired adults and children throughout Mexico and Honduras over the course of that mission trip.
An estimated 5 percent of the world’s population - 432 million adults and 34 million children - have disabling hearing loss with the greatest prevalence in low and middle-income populations. The impact of hearing loss not only affects the individual but their family, community, country and the world at large. The need for the Foundation’s work is enormous.
