The Earbus Foundation has a very small administrative office and the vast majority of funding is spent on providing services directly to children in need.
We have TCC (tax concession) and DGR (deductible gift recipient) status through the Australian Taxation Office. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
How your donation helps:
$100 - a child is screened 4 times in a year for OM (best practice as hearing fluctuates with this condition)
$250 - buys a screener, audiologist, nurse or GP an otoscope to check children’s ears
$500 - pays for medication for a school class
$1000 - provides infection control for a school
$2500 - buys a video otoscope so that ENTs can use telemedicine for remote diagnosis
$5000 - buys a tympanometer to measure whether infection/fluid is present behind the eardrum
$10 000 - buys an audiometer to test children’s hearing
$25 000 - purchases audiology equipment (both tympanometer & audiometer)
$50 000 - pays a GP's salary for a year in the program
$75 000 - purchases a metro based Earbus
