Medtronic Foundation Focusing on School Programs This Year

The Medtronic Foundation announced new guidelines Jan. 10 for its HeartRescue program's 2008 funding. Applications are due Feb. 15, and the guidelines are posted at www.medtronic.com/foundation/programs_hr.html.

In the past eight years, the foundation has awarded more than $4 million in grants to more than 150 communities and organizations worldwide to boost readiness and response to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SDA) cases. Guidelines for Canada and Europe are being developed this year to meet their needs, the foundation said.

"Priority funding will be given to new initiatives that demonstrate effective education and training programs or emergency response planning that would include CPR/AED training for designated responders, as well as students at one or more grade levels each year. Grant funds may not be used to purchase AEDs," according to the foundation's announcement.
