Donations are a great way to support tinnitus research because donations allow the ATA to get the best scientists to work in labs across the country to cure tinnitus. Other ways to get involved include becoming a member of the American Tinnitus Association, becoming a telephone volunteer, joining the action alliance by helping spread the word, and getting people to join the bandwagon as to why it is so important of funding research to find a cure for tinnitus.

There are three ways that you can join the American Tinnitus Association: general membership, professional membership, and corporate membership. It just depends on how much time and money you have available to give to the cause. If you join you will be helping support the American Tinnitus Association in the best way possible.

Many people (especially young people) find that they do not have a lot of disposable income to donate to causes such as the American Tinnitus Association.
