Helping children to reach their full potential.

Leaving a gift in your Will

Your legacy will open worlds

For children born deaf or hard of hearing, every day without sound limits their potential. The early years are crucial to give them the best opportunity to grow up learning to hear, listen and speak just like their peers.

You have the opportunity to make this a reality, with a gift in your Will – a lasting and positive change for babies born now, and for many generations to come.

Our vision is to open worlds to create better futures, and ensure the best outcomes for people with hearing loss. We achieve this through the latest technology, early identification and intervention and world-class research and innovation. Together, we can strive towards a future where we can help even more people.

“There is nothing better you can do for a family than helping their child to communicate. And by helping a child to listen and speak, you will be giving them the opportunity to be involved in their community.” – Dr Dimity Dornan AO, Founder of Hear and Say.

Our commitment to you

Your gift will open worlds. We are committed to our cause. With up to two babies in every 1,000 born in Australia with hearing loss, it is a journey shared by many. Your gift will play a critical role in ensuring that these babies can grow up in a world rich with sound, and achieve milestones just like their friends, classmates or siblings.

Your generosity leaves a legacy. Your decision now to leave a gift in your Will creates a long-lasting legacy, ensuring impact is made for a cause close to your heart.

It’s simple. Making the decision to leave a gift in your Will doesn’t take long or to make huge a difference.

“Deafness isn’t life threatening, but the solutions are life-changing. The kids who go through Hear and Say get to be kids.” – Dianna, mum to seven-year-old Jimmy who uses two cochlear implants.
