Starkey Hearing Foundation

According to the World Health Organization, more than 360 million people have disabling hearing loss, with the greatest prevalence living in developing countries. Unfortunately, less than three percent of these individuals can afford hearing aids or even have access to the care they need. We are working tirelessly to change this by building strong partnerships, empowering local teams and expanding our three-phase Community-Based Hearing HealthCare model around the world.

Starkey Hearing Foundation made a commitment in 2010 to Clinton Global Initiative to provide 1 million hearing aids this decade.

We continue to travel the globe helping people in need, and to date have given the gift of hearing in more than 100 countries.

We believe hearing is a vehicle to reflect caring and to improve the lives of individuals, their families, and communities.

As a young man, William F. Austin, founder of Starkey Hearing Foundation, realised his true calling in life was helping people hear, and that by doing so, he could have a lasting impact on the world.

For more than 50 years, Austin has been providing the gift of hearing to people in need, and to formalise the philanthropic efforts of Starkey Hearing Technologies, he officially founded Starkey Hearing Foundation in 1984. He had a simple premise:

"Alone we can't do much. Together we can change the world."

Austin built the organisation on his vision — So the World May Hear. Over the last three decades, he has expanded the Foundation’s reach from Minnesota across the United States and around the world. With the help of thousands of volunteers and supporters.
