The EAR Foundation of Arizona has developed several successful and innovative programs and has greatly benefited from generous grants and gifts from St. Luke's Health Initiatives, The Arizona Community Foundation, The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, Valley Anesthesiology Foundation, Board of Visitors, the Wallace Foundation, the Getz Foundation, Arizona Hearing Resources, National Organization for Hearing Research, The Bruce T. Halle Family Foundation, Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center and private donors.

In 1971, Michael E. Glasscock, III, M.D. established The EAR Foundation in Nashville, TN. His objective was to bridge the gap between the hearing impaired and the world of hearing. Dr. Glasscock chose to establish the new Foundation with the partnership of Baptist Hospital in Nashville. He was correct in believing that Baptist Hospital would be one of the first neuroscience centers in the nation. 

John D. Macias, MD, completed a clinical fellowship at The EAR Foundation in Nashville. Following completion of his fellowship in otology, a surgical subspecialty of otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat specialty), Dr. Macias joined a medical practice in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1995, Dr. Macias established The EAR Foundation of Arizona.
