Many local Audiology and Hearing Aid offices will accept donated hearing aids as well. However, in order to receive a tax deductible letter for the donation, you must donate to a non-profit entity.

Try to find a Starkey dealer in your area. They can send them to the Starkey Hearing Foundation. They use them for children all over the world that can't afford to buy hearing aids. Starkey will send you a letter of donation you can use for your taxes.

Ditto to that! The Starkey Hearing Foundation is the world's largest source of donated/repurposed hearing aids, active in 107 countries. To date they have given away about 1.9 MILLION hearing aids. They will send you a letter recognizing your donation and you can then file this with your tax return as a charitable donation. www.starkeyhearingfoundation.org

The Auditory-Verbal Center in Atlanta (founded 1977) and The Center for Hearing and Speech in Houston (since 1947) are both well-run 501(c)(3) hearing charities, and they can send you a copy of their 501(c)(3) forms along with your receipt for your tax returns.

If overseas is your destination, The Carel du Toit Centre in Tygerberg, Cape Town, South Africa is also highly reputable; and since hearing aids are only covered for 60dB or greater losses, any hearing aid donations are appreciated.

There are many places that will accept hearing aid donations. I would check with your local audiologist. Or we often recommend Starkey. Here is another organization that also accepts donations.

Check with your local school audiologist to see if the hearing aids you intend to donate would be helpful to a child in need in your community.  Local Lions or Sertoma Clubs are excellent at collecting used hearing aids.  You can determine the value of the donation by taking the original purchase price and applying a standard depreciation schedule to that purchase from the date of purchase to the present.  An accountant can help you with the donation and charitable contribution specifics of your finances and donations.  Hear Now - as mentioned in other posts on this topic is an excellent way to donate used instruments when other avenues are not available. Most of all - thank you for thinking of others and the need for hearing help.

Donate your hearing aids to a local audiologist who works with your community schools. Many school districts have children in need and unable to afford hearing aids. I work with local school audiologists to give working adjustable hearing aids.

Your State Chapter Lion's Club will gladly take your donation and offer you a charitable contribution form for tax purposes.  Also, consider asking the specialist you purchased from.  A Lot of times they have knowledge of someone who could use them but can't afford.  There's no tax write-off for donating them back into the community, but you do get a good feeling for giving! Donate to the Lion's Club in your state.

We are a small, non-profit in Palm Beach County. We take all brands of hearing aids and all styles. Behind-the-ear hearing aids that are in good working condition, are provided to low-income people in the community. Anything we cannot use is sent to Starkey to be used overseas. We send a donation receipt for tax purposes. Check our website for more information.

Entheos Hearing Connection welcomes hearing aid donations. They are then fit by members of Entheos Audiology Cooperative for use in our international hearing missions or used for credit on repairs/refurbishment. Donations can be sent to Entheos Hearing Connection, 429 E Dupont Rd #126, Fort Wayne, IN 46825. A letter of receipt will then be returned to the donating group.

I always suggest Hear Now. See the response above for the address. They supply hearing aids to people all over the country and the world. If they cannot use the donated hearing aid, they use the parts.
