For those in need
HERE2HEAR is a 501 (c3) charitable organization that provides a host of free services and programs related to hearing healthcare for children and adults in the Richmond and the surrounding areas. Our mission is to prevent poor hearing health.
Donating to Here2Hear is more important now than ever.
Like many non profit organizations, no one prepares for a pandemic, especially the abrupt financial challenges that will occur. Our annual fundraisers that we depend on for funding have been severely impacted as a result of COVID-19, which results in less funding to provide our community programs such as free hearing screenings, exams for the uninsured and hearing aids for those that can not afford them. This further impacts how we conduct our organization to include costs and fees to maintain the organization.
There is no amount is too small to donate to Here2Hear. We appreciate any amount that is given. Know that 100% of the donations given to Here2Hear goes directly to the organization and covers the cost of our programs and daily operations. We thank you in advanced for your support.
