2017 Spring Appeal
Please consider a donation today. No donation is too small.
Dear HLAA Supporter,
Every year at this time we call on our supporters, members and friends to respond to our spring appeal for donations. Because of your continued financial support over the years, HLAA has been able to represent you in the places it matters most.
Please give generously to the 2017 Spring Appeal. Your donations fund HLAA, an organization that is invited and welcomed to show up at every table where people with hearing loss are discussed, and more importantly, where decisions are made on your behalf.
There are some things money can’t buy and reputation is one of them. You can be proud of your organization. Whenever HLAA represents you, we are warmly welcomed as being the number one organization that stands for consumers who want to use technology and stay in the hearing world.
HLAA’s credibility has steadily grown since our founding in 1979. I am proud of HLAA’s reputation we have earned together through our work at the federal level with laws and policies, through HLAA Chapters bringing people together for support, by our technology training program to help people learn about hearing assistive technology, through our free webinars, Hearing Loss Magazine, the Walk4Hearing, the annual HLAA Convention which brings you the latest research, workshops and technology in a hearing-friendly place, and much more.
You have helped build HLAA with your donation of time and money.
That is why I am asking again for your support.
Our Work This Year
We are building programs that follow the recommendations of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine study on Hearing Health Care for Adults: Priorities for Improving Access and Affordability.
Right now a lot of our resources have been used to support the Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017. There are lots of adults who can’t afford hearing aids. They call or email our office every single day. In fact, 85 percent of people who could benefit from hearing aids don’t get them, one reason is cost.
Please read my letter with more details on HLAA’s work and why your support is so important for us to be able to be the one consumer organization that people look to for trusted information.
This spring we have a goal for those who can dig deep and give a larger gift. If you donate $10,000 or more by May 31, you will be part of the Advisory Circle. See the donation form for details of this extraordinary opportunity.
