Annual Giving Campaign

The Annual Giving Campaign sustains the current research and educational programs that are vital to increased knowledge about hearing and balance related disorders. The Foundation welcomes contributions of all levels and from all individuals, organizations, and corporations. Gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign will be recognized in our publications and on the website. There are many ways to support the Foundation this year, and in years to come.

Giving to the General Fund

Contributions to the AHRF’s Annual Giving Campaign support the Foundation’s general fund which underwrites research grants and special projects. General funds sustain the core programs that are central to the Foundation’s mission. Donations to the Annual Giving Campaign can also be restricted to use for research into certain areas such as Meniere’s disease. Gifts are accepted online at the Foundation’s website and by mail or fax. There are several levels from which to choose:

  • Chairman’s Circle $5,000 and above
  • Research Champion $1,000 to $4,999
  • Research Supporter $100 to $999
  • Friends of the Foundation $99 or under

Honor and Memorial Gifts

The Foundation acknowledges gifts made in honor or in memory of the special people in our lives. We recognize these special tributes personally, and appreciate the kindness of many generous individuals. Please use the enclosed form to provide us with your instructions about notifications.

Planned Giving

The Foundation wishes to secure its role in research for generations to come. When you remember the Foundation through a gift in your will, known as a bequest, you become part of a special group of supporters whose generosity has made possible some of the most innovative and cutting-edge research projects. Gifts that come from sources other than current expendable income are usually part of an overall estate plan that may take effect during a donor’s life or after his or her death. Individuals can choose to leave a specified sum of money or a percentage of their estate. Other forms of planned giving include securities, bank accounts and certificates of deposit, life insurance policies, retirement plans, life income funds, and other similar giving mechanisms. These types of gifts should be arranged by a qualified attorney or financial planner.
