About Starkey Hearing Technologies
Starkey Hearing Technologies is much more than the hearing aids we produce. We are in the business of connecting people and changing lives. We believe being able to hear the world and the people around us is as essential to the human experience as breathing.
As a world leader in manufacturing and delivering advanced hearing solutions, our goal is to bring people together and make lives richer by empowering individuals to reach their full potential in life.
In 1967, William F. Austin founded our company with the simple premise, “Alone we can’t do much. Together, we can change the world.” We live that vision every day – and it’s why Starkey Hearing Technologies is proud to support the Starkey Hearing Foundation to help more people in need around the world receive the gift of hearing. To date we have given over 1 million hearing aids to people around the world.
Starkey and philanthropy
Starkey Hearing Foundation works year round “So The World May Hear®“
To date, over 1 million people who otherwise couldn’t hear have been given a chance to be a part of this world thanks to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Today, the Starkey Hearing Foundation is sustained by the efforts of thousands of volunteers and donors around the world. Their support allows us to deliver more than 100,000 hearing aids annually through more than 100 global hearing missions a year, in countries like Mexico, Malawi, Vietnam and Mozambique.
Raising awareness and promoting hearing health
In addition to giving the gift of hearing, the Foundation is committed to global hearing health and is leading a national program called Listen Carefully. Through music and education, Listen Carefully helps teens understand the science of hearing and dangers of exposure to high-decibel sounds. And its non-profit organization program Hear Now assists permanent U.S. residents who are deaf or hard-of-hearing and have limited financial resources.
