What is the purpose of this site?
The SaveStation Crowdfunding Program is an initiative that allows individuals to place SaveStations around their neighbourhoods to make a positive impact in increasing accessibility and access to life saving AEDs. This initiative was developed to help anyone in a community start a fundraising campaign. The SaveStation platform provides the social sharing tools to help spread the word and ultimately tracks and manages all the donations raised during the campaign.

We’ve raised the funds – now what?
SaveStation will connect you with a local Authorized Distributor if you are not already working with one. The Distributor will work with you directly to arrange shipment and guide you through the installation of the SaveStation (and AED). The Distributor will lead you through how to properly monitor and take care of your SaveStation. Each Distributor will offer their own programs and services, please speak with them to discuss AED training and installation details.
Will I receive a charitable tax receipt for my contribution?
SaveStation is not a registered charity and can not provide tax receipts for any contributions.
Are there any ongoing costs?
