Donate a Defib Community Programme ("Donate-A-Defib")
The Donate-A-Defib Community Deployment Programme is an initiative of the Cardiac Arrest Survival Foundation ("Foundation") and made possible by generous donors.
Donate-A-Defib provides CARDIAC Responder fully serviced Defibrillator / AED Rescue Systems for the benefit of the community ("Community Deployments").
Donate-A-Defib is managed and overseen by the Donate-A-Defib Committee which includes representatives appointed by the Chair of the Foundation.
Funds or in-kind support associated with Donate-A-Defib is accounted for and managed separately from the Foundation general account.
100% of funds donated to Donate-A-Defib are allocated to equipment and service costs associated with Community Deployments i.e. there are no administrative costs associated with funds donated.
Donate-A-Defib grants CARDIAC Responder fully serviced Defibrillator / AED Rescue Systems to community organisations or bodies that meet the following criteria ("Grant Recipients") as determined by the Donate-A-Defib Committee:
They are a community organisation
They are an education body or association that will promote awareness of cardiac arrest survival and the mission of the Foundation
They are selected and fully funded by a donor
These Community Deployments are provided at no cost to the Grant Recipient.
The Term of each Community Deployment is determined by the Donate-A-Defib Committee.
Cardiac Responder is the principal sponsor of Donate-A-Defib and assumes ownership and management risk of all equipment associated with each Community Deployment.
All equipment and services are provided to the Foundation by Cardiac Responder on a not for profit basis.
Terms and Conditions
Each Grant Recipient must enter a zero rental fee equipment service agreement for the Term with Cardiac Responder. The equipment service programme rental agreement governs the provision of equipment and services by Cardiac Responder and includes the provision of important services (including CPR training) associated with the equipment that the Grant Recipient must participate in. The rental agreement also includes insurance provisions protecting the owner of the equipment and service provider against such things as equipment theft or damage.
Cardiac Responder may remove the Community Deployment if either the Grant Recipient is in breach of the zero rental fee equipment service programme rental agreement or there is no funding available by Donate-A-Defib in which case the Grant Recipient is notified a year in advance during which time they make alternative arrangements for a defibrillator.
Recognition plaque and unveiling event
A plaque will be affixed adjacent to the Community Deployment acknowledging the Donor and Donate-A-Defib.
Donate-A-Defib will also facilitate a small event to celebrate the Community Deployment.
