Non-profit organizations that qualify as Walk4Hearing Alliance organizations can form teams that will walk in the NC Walk4Hearing, and their organization can share in the funds raised by their Alliance team. To be an Alliance, the organization must be a non-profit organization that agrees to use the funds raised for projects related to hearing loss.
Alliance organizations might specifically focus on hearing loss, but they don't have to focus only on hearing loss; they might be a civic organization or a church that agrees to use the funds raised by the Walk4Hearing for something related to hearing loss.
Perhaps your church has been interested in installing an audio loop or purchasing an assistive listening system so hard of hearing people can hear the sermon better. Perhaps your organization wants to support accessibility for people with hearing loss in the arts or provide scholarships for deaf or hard of hearing children to attend a special camp.
