We welcome any donation to help us support our mission.

There are over 145,000 people with hearing loss in Sarasota and Manatee Counties with hearing loss, representing 16.1% of the population, the highest incidence in the country. Our goal is to reach out to everyone who needs the support and to “be there” for them as they how to cope and improve their hearing.

But we need your support to provide the education, information, advocacy and support all the hearing loss in our community needs.

We have an all-volunteer staff, so please know that 100% of your donation,  plus every cent of the revenue we receive from membership dues, is used to support our members and to reach out to others in the community who need help.
