Continuing a visionary legacy
About the Oberkotter Foundation

Our Mission

The Oberkotter Foundation helps families ensure their children who are deaf or hard of hearing have opportunities to reach their full potential through listening and spoken language.

Since 1985, the Foundation has provided more than $500 million to programs throughout the United States.

Our Legacy

Our Vision

We believe that early learning is critical to a child’s language development and lifetime success, and children who are deaf or hard of hearing should have the same opportunities as their hearing peers to capitalize on the critical early period for brain development.

We envision a future where quality pediatric audiology and listening and spoken language (LSL) intervention is available and affordable for all children as close as possible to their birth or acquired hearing loss, and families and caregivers are empowered and equipped to effectively support their child’s learning, language, and literacy development.
