    Shalom uvrocho

    I am looking into grants to acquire an AED device for my shul.

    Do any of you have any leads?

    Every moysed should have an AED and people who know how to use it. It’s an extraordinary life-saving device. Hopefully this thread will help not only me but others who would like to have an AED in their shul/cheder/yeshiva/etc


    The current federal and state grants for “security” do NOT authorize funding for emergency health care devices or services. Check with your local EMS or Hatzalah since they might be aware of any local programs offering financial assistance. However, the costs of defibrillators have come down substantially and a good quality “new” device can be purchased for only $1500 or $2,000 and a refurbished one for $1,000. This should be within the range of most shuls and shtieblach.


    How much do they cost?


    YES! There sure is, some grants for FREE AEDs, we believe that there are lots of generous people Willing to help you acquire an AED device, (Shuls are most of the time granted by their own Shull members – mispallelim) Please note that grants often change, and may no longer be a viable source of assistance,
    • Following is one site,
    To apply go to,
    Fill out an application,
    To be eligible for a grant from Hopey’s Heart Foundation, you must be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization or a government entity (including a public school or school district). AEDs are awarded quarterly.
    Valero Energy Foundation makes grant funding available to non-profits that align with its main areas of focus: basic needs, education, healthcare, and civic. An AED may fall under the healthcare focus. Eligibility: 501(c)(3) non-profits, Located near one of Valero’s major service areas.
    The Lowe’s Community Partners grant program supports nonprofits and municipalities on projects including technology upgrades and safety improvements. An AED may qualify for either of those categories. Grant amount: $2,001 – $100,000 Must be in a location where there is a Lowe’s store, runs on spring and fall cycles, The review process takes 90 days from the cycle close date, and applicants will receive a status email after the review is completed.


    have 20 people pony up 75 dollar and you are done


    Not every Shull have 20 people pony up 75 dollar and you are done, maybe it’s time to do a kind of a Citywide campaign so every Hemisha shull in the tristate, should have at least 1 AED, and a first aid box, (for ex. Tylenol, bandages, Bacitracin, Etc.,) Good idea, Hu? I’m ready to help in such a campaign,
    If anyone wants to organize an AED drive should please message on the platform, and/or if anyone wants to be Menadev, should please message here,
    Thank you all, Tizki L’mitsvos,


    Each shul can / should do the own, $1000 -1500 is small potatoes if there is a will there is a way.

    hashem says no

    @commonsaychel. you are a small potato. if you know what I mean.


    and to you; small potato, you be manadev the first one, Tizku Lmitzvos,


    We should do an EAD Drive in BP first, let’s see how it goes, and we will take it from there to other Yiddish neighborhoods,
    I’m sure Met Council or even Red Cross shall have such a Federal Grant for such kind of drive, the same as they did on Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Detectors, most people don’t even know that there exists such a grant, I called up Red Cross, they came 2 2 story apartment, they installed about outside of each room a detector free of charge,
