Grants to Virginia nonprofit volunteer rescue organizations in eligible locations to enhance organizational operations. Funding may be used for capital expenses and training as well as to provide other needed assistance. Past grants were awarded for the purchase of items such as utility vehicles, power stretchers, office equipment, and powerload systems. Funds must benefit rescue squad entities in Virginia Beach.

The Foundation’s grant program focuses on providing the City’s volunteer rescue squad entities with a fiscal alternative that enables the volunteer rescue squad system to better provide the City of Virginia Beach with a balanced and effective EMS capability. With the Foundation’s support, the work of the individual rescue squad entities and their related support organizations will have the opportunity to improve their overall operational capability. Grants will be made to eligible volunteer rescue squad entities to sponsor training, equipment, and community outreach related to pre-hospital emergency care in the following categories:

  • Equipment & Supplies
  • Training and Education
  • Community Awareness
  • Capital Expenditures
  • Recruitment & Retention
