Donations to AHRF

Your contributions to AHRF help the medical community investigate how we hear, how we lose hearing, and how we can regain it. If you’d like, you can assign your gift to Meniere’s disease research. Your gift of any amount is greatly appreciated.

  • Research Champion $1,000 to $4,999
  • Research Supporter $100 to $999

Honor and Memorial Gifts

You may want to honor a special person with your gift. When you designate your contribution in memory or in honor of someone, they become part of the effort to eradicate hearing and balance problems. The Foundation will acknowledge your tribute in its newsletter. We will notify the person of your choice of the donation (but not the amount). We deeply appreciate these gestures of kindness.

Planned Giving

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 makes possible some of the most innovative and cutting-edge research projects. You can opt to leave a specific amount or a percentage of your estate. Planned gifts can be through securities, certificates of deposit, life insurance policies, retirement plan payments, life income funds, and other similar giving mechanisms. We encourage you to talk with a qualified attorney or financial planner to decide which option is best for you and your family.
