Leave a legacy so that no child is limited by hearing loss.

Listen and Talk’s vision is that no child is limited by hearing loss and you can ensure that families and their children who are deaf or hard of hearing have the important early services to learn listening and spoken language. Planned gifts do not have to be complicated and anyone can do it. It’s as simple as adding language to your will or specifying that you want Listen and Talk to be a beneficiary. Planned gifts give children and families the gift of language that empowers them to make a difference in this world. Thank you for including Listen and Talk in your planned giving…
