Join the HLAA Giving Challenge

Donate to the HLAA Giving Challenge!

The HLAA Giving Challenge is about so much more than raising money in the short term. It’s about the future of HLAA and building our capacity as an organization to better help people like you, and those you love, who are determined to live their best lives with hearing loss.

In the face of these changing, challenging times, HLAA stands by its mission with ever-greater resolve. We exist to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy. HLAA exists for you—and because of you.

The HLAA Giving Challenge is about our future—together—as we navigate the times ahead.

With your help, we will sustain the HLAA community. We will evolve our programming to a robust digital platform. And we will grow our outreach, strengthening HLAA Chapters across the country and invigorating our advocacy network.

Please help us raise $500,000 by year’s end.

Quote from Cheri Perazzoli, HLAA Board of Directors and HLAA Washington State Association President
“When I was a young mother diagnosed with progressive hearing loss, the fear and challenges felt insurmountable. But then I found HLAA, and it became my roadmap to living a fully engaged life. I am deeply aware of the many challenges people with hearing loss face—and how in the midst of the pandemic, the daily test of resilience can be utterly overwhelming. It’s for the people who so urgently need our community—and because I believe so strongly in HLAA’s vision—that I increased my annual donation. The need is growing exponentially, and so must HLAA.”
