Hearing Aid Donations
Used or unwanted hearing aids in any condition are gratefully accepted as donations by John Tracy Clinic.
If you have behind-the-ear aids that are in good repair, we are able to use them as loaner aids for the preschool children in our programs.
Other hearing aids, particularly the in-the-ear type that our children can’t wear, are sent to a hearing aid manufacturer for credit towards purchasing loaner aids. (The manufacturer recycles the electronic components to make refurbished aids.)
Some of our stock aids are also employed as teaching tools, either in demonstrations for parents and professionals, or in presentations to the public.
Who are our hearing aid donors?
The relatives of hearing aid users who have passed away
People who have purchased new aids and do not feel the need to keep the old ones
People who have received cochlear implants and therefore do not need the aid(s) anymore
What are the tax benefits?
Your hearing aid donation is the fair market value at the time of the gift. In order to determine the value of your donation, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your hearing aid. We will mail you a receipt confirming the number of hearing aids donated.
Where to mail them?
Please package and mail the hearing aids you wish to donate, along with your name and address, to:
