If you're planning on implementing a comprehensive AED program with multiple devices or a community-wide public access defibrillation (PAD) program, you may want to consider applying for capital funding.
Capital projects are typically defined as building purchases, new construction, expansion, renovation, equipment, or land acquisition.
A matching grant is one in which the applicant (grantee) pledges to raise a set amount of funds that will be matched by the donor. Matching grants can be an effective way to fund a (relatively) small project such as the purchase of a single AED and related equipment. If your organization does not have 501(c)3 status but you have a circle of ardent supporters, this may be a great option for you.
