our Programs

For the 2nd year, Here2Hear has partnered with Birdies for Charity.  Make your gift go 10% further by donating through the Dominion Energy Charity Classic’s Birdies for Charity program presented by TowneBank. The final day to donate is October 18, 2020.

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.

You Are Invited to Participate in Virtual Fun Fridays!
