For more than forty years the Oticon Foundation New Zealand has been active supporting and encouraging activities which aim to improve the lives of the hearing impaired in New Zealand through communication and knowledge.
During that time the Foundation has been pleased to provide over three million dollars in grants to New Zealanders and organisations right across the spectrum from academic and scientific research, through professional education and training, to direct assistance for projects of the not for profit sector.
With New Zealand being the one remaining local Oticon Foundation in the world, the decision has been taken to conclude its activities and consolidate them in the home Foundation, Oticon Denmark. Accordingly, the Oticon Foundation New Zealand is no longer accepting applications for grants.
Hence forth any questions concerning future projects, or any other matters, should be addressed to Oticon Australia:

Previous Projects Funded
