The IDEAL Insurance Group is one of the five founding donors that have made the establishment and work of the foundation possible. IDEAL's support for the foundation has since been continuous, focusing above all on prevention and education.

The terzo Institute, hearing acoustics specialist based in Sonneberg/Thuringia, has been supporting the foundation's prevention work since December 2019. The focus of the cooperation is the development of learning materials for day-care centres and schools on the subject of "hearing protection and tinnitus". More and more young people are suffering from tinnitus and hearing impairment. It is noticeable that many young people are not aware of the connection between loud music and hearing loss. For this reason, the foundation has developed a pilot project for kindergardens which deals with the sense of hearing in a playful way: The children learn together and in dialogue with the teachers how sensitive their own hearing is and how important it is to pay attention to it. terzo supports this with a donation of 10.000€.

Among other things, OHROPAX provided hearing protection plugs and information materials which were personally distributed to visitors at music festivals, sports events and information events as part of the awareness campaign "I hear something you don't hear - protect your ears" .
