You are invited to join the AIVER Team as we work to better the quality of human life.

Until several years ago, AIVER was funded wholly by private contributions from a small number of individuals. Changes in the economy have made it impossible to continue in this fashion.

AIVER researchers have received major research grants totaling approximately $5,000,000 from private corporations and foundations. However, these funds were all committed to ongoing or now-completed research. Generous private support is needed to permit new research in the coming years.

We invite you to join with us as we continue the work that is still to be done — research in prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of hearing, voice, and related disorders. 

AIVER is a not-for-profit (c)(3) corporation; contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. We, and the patients who are in need of advanced knowledge and care, thank you for your generosity.
