Starkey Hearing Foundation – Donate your old Hearing Aids

Want to donate your old, no longer used hearing aids to a good cause?

We will forward donated, non-working, aids to the Starkey Hearing Foundation (SHF), founded by Bill and Tani Austin, owners of Starkey Technologies.

Donated instruments are broken down for any re-useable parts which are then used to refurbish behind-the-ear style instruments for free distribution around the world to hearing impaired people who live in countries where hearing technology is unattainable.

“Through their foundation, Bill and Tani take teams from Canada and the US on multiple missions each year to fit the donated instruments. To date, Starkey Technologies and Foundation have donated more than one million hearing aids around the world. I have had the privilege to volunteer on 4 missions – to Panama, El Salvadore, Turkey, and Kenya. It is truly a life changing experience – and makes one appreciate all the advantages we enjoy and often take for granted here at home.”
