We receive a discount from the manufacturers of every AED we donate to a school or charitable organization. As we began getting calls from businesses, social service agencies and places of worship about obtaining AEDs for their facilities, we negotiated discounts from several manufacturers as long as they purchase through Greg’s Fund. Often, groups wishing to implement AED programs contact us with questions about how AEDs work, where they should be placed and how training is obtained. When they are ready to purchase, we forward the name of the organization and the contact person to the appropriate manufacturer, contact is made, and the AED is delivered at a discounted price.
To date, more than one hundred AEDs have been purchased in this manner. In most cases, prices for those who purchase through Greg’s Fund are lower than Pennsylvania’s state-negotiated price (but not lower than the price for schools in Pennsylvania). A partial list of organizations that have chosen to obtain AEDs in this manner follows.
