Consumer Reports has recognized the Hearing Health Foundation (HHF)—a nonprofit funder of hearing research and balance in the US—for its high integrity, citing excellence in fundraising, governance, effectiveness, and financial standards, HHF announced. At the same time, the Edelman Trust Barometer, a yearly gauge of the public’s confidence levels, finds Americans are more skeptical than ever before.
The foundation is regarded by Consumer Reports as one of the “Best Charities for Your Donations.” This charity roster, released annually to facilitate informed giving, includes 11 categories ranging from Animal Welfare to Youth Development. HHF is acknowledged as a top-rated nonprofit in the “Blind and Hearing-Impaired” category, and the only organization listed whose mission is to better the lives of those with hearing loss.
Consumer Reports determines the “Best Charities for Your Donations” using metrics from three major charity watchdogs: BBB Wise Giving Alliance, Charity Navigator, and Charity Watch. These watchdogs independently research charities’ financial histories and moral standards to evaluate how donors’ contributions are used.
HHF’s endorsements from Consumer Reports and charity watchdogs show a mission-first approach.
“HHF exists to better the lives of those with hearing loss by funding life-changing research and developing awareness and education programs,” said HHF CEO Nadine Dehgan. “HHF’s charity ratings and continued placement on the ‘Consumer Reports” list illustrate how we pursue our mission responsibly. We are grateful to those who give their time and financial resources in pursuit of better treatments and cures for hearing and balance conditions.”
Hearing Health Foundation (HHF)’s mission is to prevent, cure, and treat hearing loss and tinnitus and to educate the public about hearing health. Learn more at hhf.org. Contact us at [email protected] or 212.257.6140 / 888.435.6104 (TTY).
