Hearing Health Foundation a Trustworthy Choice in an Era of American Skepticism

Posted on: 24 Feb 18

NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Independent charity assessment organizations esteem Hearing Health Foundation (HHF)—the largest nonprofit funder of hearing research and balance in the U.S.—for its high integrity, citing excellence in fundraising, governance, effectiveness, and financial standards. 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.

Contrasting with the nation's climate of doubt, HHF has proven itself worthy of trust. The foundation is regarded by Consumer Reports as one of the "Best Charities for Your Donations." This prominent 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 unbiased endorsements are especially meaningful given Edelman's discovery that American faith in various institutions has sharply declined. In fact, the U.S. Trust Index fell 23 points to 45, ranking the U.S. the lowest of the 28 countries surveyed. Confidence specifically in nonprofit organizations dropped from 58 to 49 percent in the past year, while media, government, and businesses saw deeper plunges.

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. 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." - Nadine Dehgan, CEO.

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 Contact us at or 212.257.6140 / 888.435.6104 (TTY).
