Contact Shannon Kisselbaugh, Director of Philanthropy, at (502) 371-9939 to discuss ways to support Heuser Hearing Institute.
Donate by mail or phone
Mail your check made payable to Heuser Hearing & Language Academy to 111 E. Kentucky Street, Louisville, KY 40203. Call (502) 371-9939 to make a gift by phone.
Along with monetary donations and volunteer support, we have ongoing needs for specific items for Heuser Hearing & Language Academy and our hearing clinics.
We rely on the generosity of the community to help provide these items on our Wish List. Donations are tax deductible per IRS regulations.
Donors can purchase items from our Amazon WishList 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.
IRA Charitable Rollover
If you are 70 ½ or older and have a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can use your required minimum distribution to transfer up to $100,000 directly to Heuser Hearing Institute through an IRA Charitable Rollover gift. An IRA Charitable Rollover makes it easier to use IRA assets during your lifetime to make charitable gifts without first having to recognize the distribution as income. Please contact Heuser Hearing Institute before initiating an IRA Charitable Rollover gift.
Gifts of Appreciated Stock
Donating appreciated securities often allows donors to make a bigger philanthropic impact and enjoy greater tax advantages than donating cash or selling the stock and donating the proceeds. Did you know that giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash? How? Donors who have held a publicly traded stock for more than one year can avoid capital gains tax and may be eligible for an income tax deduction for the market value of the stock they are gifting.
Hearing Aids and Devices
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. Donated hearing aids are also used for educational and training purposes for staff and students completing their audiology residency at our organization. If you would like to donate hearing aids and devices, drop them off at any of our locations during regular business hours.
Join the Legacy Society
Including a gift to Heuser Hearing Institute in your estate plans helps ensure that future generations will have access to hearing health and experience the gift of sound and language. Legacy Society membership is extended to individuals who support Heuser Hearing Institute through a bequest in their will or living trust, a beneficiary designation in a retirement account or life insurance policy, or through other planned gifts that provide income for life and tax benefits to the donor.
Contact Shannon Kisselbaugh, Director of Philanthropy, at (502) 371-9939 for suggested language for your will or beneficiary designation form. Please consult your tax advisor when considering making any charitable gift. Heuser Hearing Institute cannot provide tax advice.
