AED Grant Program

Dear AED Donation Applicant:

We are so glad that you have decided to apply for an automated external defibrillator (AED) from the Hopey’s Heart Foundation (the “Foundation”). Please note that in order to apply you must be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization or a government entity (including a public school or school district). The Foundation will make decisions about recipients on a quarterly basis based on information provided in AED Donation Applications. We will inform all applicants in writing as to whether they have been selected for an award.  If your school or institution is not selected in the quarterly period in which you apply, your application will be considered again for up to an additional three quarterly grant reviews.  If your school or institution does not receive an award during that period and is still interested in being considered, please submit a new application.  Please note that submitting an application is not a guarantee that your school or institution will be provided with an AED from the Foundation.

If your school or institution is selected to receive an AED from the Foundation, it will need to sign an AED Donation Agreement  as a condition of the Foundation’s donation and prior to receipt of an AED. As part of the AED Donation Agreement your institution agrees to assume full responsibility for all aspects of your AED program and for compliance with all relevant laws, regulations and standards of care applicable to your school or institution.  This application may be signed by any employee at your school or institution.  However, the AED Donation Agreement must be signed by a person who has authority to legally bind the school or institution receiving the AED. Your school or institution will need to return the signed AED Donation Agreement to the Foundation within 30 days of being notified that your organization has been selected as a recipient, so please plan accordingly.
