An estimated 100 children are provided with hearing devices each year.

Children are eligible to receive a grant providing the need is verified by a prescription from an audiologist or physician. The HIKE Fund, Inc. is administered by a Board of Directors composed of individuals from the fields of Audiology, Business, Education, Labor, Law and Medicine. The Fund has awarded many types of devices including, but not limited to, hearing aids, FM systems, closed caption converters, tactile units, alerting systems, and specialized sports equipment, to aid children with hearing loss in communication.
