Ways to Give

Give Now

To ensure that you can have full confidence in making your gift, Heuser Hearing Institute declares that all donors have the rights listed in the Donor Bill of Rights. Contact Will Frentz, Philanthropy Officer, at wfrentz@thehearinginstitute.org to discuss ways to support Heuser Hearing Institute or the LDOS Foundation. 

Mail your check made payable to Heuser Hearing & Language Academy to 111 E. Kentucky Street, Louisville, KY 40203. Call (502) 371-9919 to make a gift by phone.

If you are 70 ½ or older, consider a tax-free gift from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Heuser Hearing & Language Academy or the LDOS Foundation. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

Your donated hearing aids and devices are used in our hearing aid loaner bank, the largest of its kind in the state, to give those in need in our community the gift of sound. If you would like to donate hearing aids and devices, drop them off at any of our locations during regular business hours. 

Including a gift in your will or estate plans helps ensure that future generations will have access to hearing health and experience the gift of sound and language. 1948 Legacy Society membership is extended to individuals who support Heuser Hearing Institute and/or the Louisville Deaf Oral School Foundation through a bequest in their will or living trust, a beneficiary designation in a retirement account or life insurance policy, or through other gifts that provide income for life and tax benefits to the donor. Learn more about the 1948 Legacy Society.

Donors can purchase items from our Amazon Wish List and have them delivered directly to Heuser Hearing Institute. You may also drop off donated items to one of our locations during regular business hours.

For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Heuser Hearing & Language Academy. For transfer instructions, contact Will Frentz, Philanthropy Officer, at wfrentz@thehearinginstitute.org. Read more about giving appreciated securities.
