HearStrong Visionary Fund

HearStrong serves to empower individuals with hearing loss, and offer support to help them thrive in their communities and beyond. We believe that any vision can be achieved with the right support, which is why we have created this initiative to help visionaries make their dreams a reality.

Whether you would like to further the education of yourself or others, provide funding for medical care, start a new business, or train for a competition, etc., the Visionary Fund can help you make that possible. The committee will select recipients based on the most compelling application and apparent need.
