Planned Giving to American Research Hearing Foundation


When you remember the American Hearing Research Foundation (AHRF) through a gift in your will, known as a bequest, you become part of a special group of supporters whose generosity makes possible some of the Foundation’s most innovative, forward-thinking, and promising research projects. You can opt to leave a specific amount or a percentage of your estate. Planned gifts can be through securities, certificates of deposit, life insurance policies, retirement plan payments, life income funds, and other similar giving mechanisms. We encourage you to talk with a qualified attorney or financial planner to decide which option is best for you and your family. Your generosity holds great significance for the millions of people living with these disorders.
