Our Mission: HRG Group believes it is important to give back to the communities in which we operate. We are honored to have developed relationships with a number of outstanding local, national and global charitable organizations and to provide support for their valuable endeavors.
Starkey Hearing Foundation
Starkey Hearing Foundation uses hearing as a vehicle to reflect caring and change lives around the world. Disabling hearing loss affects more than 360 million people, including 32 million children, worldwide, yet many do not have access to the hearing devices that can help them. Starkey Hearing Foundation fits and gives more than 100,000 hearing aids annually in the U.S. and around the world, and it has pledged to fit one million hearing aids this decade. Together with one of its largest subsidiary companies, Spectrum Brands, HRG has taken an active role in Starkey Hearing Foundation's work, providing free hearing aid batteries to all Foundation recipients, in addition to sponsoring hearing missions throughout the year. Over the last few years, members of our executive team have traveled with Starkey Hearing Foundation to Africa and Colombia to distribute hearing aids to those in need.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation
The Challenged Athletes Foundation ("CAF") provides opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities, so that they may enjoy sports and pursue their athletic dreams.
