Help raise money for the Michigan Academy of Audiology through the American Academy of Audiology Foundation's EARMark 4 Michigan fundraiser!Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the mission of the American Academy of Audiology Foundation (AAAF)?
To promote philanthropy in support of research, education, and public awareness in audiology and hearing science. How is the AAA Foundation related to the American Academy of Audiology?
The Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. It has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Academy and is part of the “A4” group of Academy partners along with the American Board of Audiology (ABA), Accreditation Commission for Audiology Education (ACAE), and Student Academy of Audiology (SAA). Why does the AAA Foundation want to partner with my state academy?
While hundreds of audiology philanthropists donate to the Foundation year after year, there are thousands we have yet to reach. In fact, 95% of American Academy of Audiology members don’t contribute to the AAA Foundation. That’s over 10,000 people!
We want to reach the “other 95%.” And to do that, we need your help. Why should my state academy partner with the AAA Foundation?
In addition to the “feel good” feeling you get when supporting your passion for the profession, there’s also a tangible benefit for your organization: Now through the end of 2014, 25% of all AAAF donations received by new donors (that are also members of your state academy) will go directly back to your organization to support educational initiatives.
To participate in the initiative, members must simply denote your state academy in the “tribute field” when making a donation online at www.audiologyfoundation.org or on their check when sending a donation to our office.How does the Foundation know to “credit” our state academy members?
New donors simply have to denote their state academy in the “tribute” field when making a gift online at www.audiologyfoundation.org. They can also do the same if sending in a check/credit card donation in one of our reply envelopes. At mid-year and year-end, the Foundation will send you a grant check.
