The Ear of the Lion Foundation, Inc.
The Hearing Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3, Foundation was formed by Lions Clubs of California/Nevada in 1982. The Foundation is dedicated to assist low income hearing-impaired people unable to afford the care they need to hear better, and issues hearing aids from its hearing bank at a nominal fee. Member Lions Clubs are encouraged to seek out patients in their community who might benefit from our services. Lions are encouraged to collect and send hearing aids no longer being used to our office.
The Foundation is funded by two primary sources. Lions Clubs can become a member club by pledging to make a semi-annual donation to the Foundation of $3.75 per active member. Individual Lions and other friends of the Foundation may become Tosch Fellowships, Life Members or Alexander Graham Bell Fellows by donating $250, $500, or $1000 respectively, to the Foundation. The principal received from these donations is permanently invested and not spent. Investment income may be used only for patient care expenses.
Officers and directors of the Foundation are available and anxious to make presentations at clubs and cabinet meetings. If you would like to arrange for a presentation, please call or write our office.
