A nonprofit’s budget is usually focused on executing its mission in the world, and frequently, that means there isn’t money left over for valuable but expensive items, like an AED. Fortunately, there are many AED grants available to nonprofits to help bridge the budget gap. We hope you can use our list of grants for AEDs for nonprofits to find a few options that would fit your organization’s needs.
