Earlier this year, the AMA Foundation announced a brand-new grant opportunity, the Save A Life Grant.
The Save A Life Grant was created to help promote safer and more medically equipped flying sites. This grant was designed to reimburse clubs for 25% (up to $200) of the cost of a recently purchased Automated External Defibrillator (AED). AEDs, which are easy to use, can be critical when helping someone who is experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
So far this year, we have awarded $784.61 to 4 clubs across the country to continue in our goal of promoting safer and better-equipped flying sites.
Fox Valley Aero Club - $184.61 awarded
Northern Virginia Radio Control Club - $200 awarded
Bay City Flyers - $200 awarded
District of Columbia Radio Control (DCRC) - $200 awarded
Awards for the Save A Life Grant are based on a first-come, first-served basis. When the allotted budget for the year is reached, awards will be discontinued for the remainder of the year. Clubs can only be awarded a maximum of $200 per year, and AEDs must have been purchased within the last two months at the time of an application being submitted.
