Your Fundraiser Makes a Difference

Why Your Support Matters

Since you’re reading this right now, it’s clear that you want to help. We need people like you. When you donate or raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, you help ensure that more survivors come home to the people they love. Thanks to the money you raise and donate, we’re able to fund research that leads to medical breakthroughs, helping survivors recover faster and return home to their families sooner.

We placed more than 8,000 life-saving automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in communities across Canada to increase someone’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest.
