We're happy to announce that the American Heart Association on the behalf of Giving Hearts Day Donors is the first to step forward with a grant of $97,964 for Cardiac Ready Communities!
During the 2017 legislative session HB 1210 established Cardiac Ready Communities as an official program under the North Dakota Department of Health. The legislation also allowed for receiving grants and gifts in support of the initiative, and for the agency to maintain a revolving account. The account allows for the program to leverage statewide grants and gifts in conjunction with community match, extending the gift impact.
A significant portion of the gift is from North Dakota donor support of AHA through Giving Hearts Day, a day of on-line giving held the second Thursday of February by the Impact Foundation/Dakota Medical Foundation. AHA will continue to support Cardiac Ready Community efforts through our participation in Giving Hearts Day.
