ATA is the nation’s foremost and trusted organization committed to finding cures for tinnitus. Our commitment demands focus, determination, strategy and resources. ATA promotes synergy between dedicated medical professionals and researchers who work with and within the tinnitus community. The battle for a cure is real, and will be won through advances in technology and medicine, areas where we have often been a conduit to new discoveries. We fulfill our mission by: (1) funding targeted research projects; (2) providing education, hope and support for the tinnitus community; (3) advocating for effective public policies focused on advancing science towards cures for tinnitus; and (4) collaborating with others to promote awareness, encourage prevention and to ultimately silence tinnitus.

Since 1971, the American Tinnitus Association has been a global leader in the effort to find a cure for tinnitus. ATA brings together patients, researchers, healthcare professionals, industry partners, and lawmakers to advance public understanding of tinnitus and fund vital tinnitus research.

As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit association (EIN# 93-0749558), ATA is driven to support the 45 million Americans struggling with tinnitus. We know that tinnitus can be a burdensome, confusing, and upsetting condition.  We also know that patients face many challenges in finding quality healthcare to manage their tinnitus. ATA aims to improve the tinnitus patient experience through compassion, education, empowerment, and advocacy. Our goal is simple: we want to help patients quiet tinnitus today by improving access to the most-validated management tools, and to silence tinnitus in the near future by funding advanced research.
