The Daniel E. Rumph II Foundation is deeply committed to our "Keeping the Beat" initiative, focusing on the crucial importance of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in public and private venues. Our foundation was born from a tragedy — a young life lost to sudden cardiac arrest during a basketball game, a life that might have been saved with access to an AED. This pivotal moment highlights why these devices are not just important, but essential.
Over the years, we have helped countless individuals and families overcome financial, medical, and social challenges. Our success stories are a testament to the impact of our programs and the dedication of our team and supporters.
We are proud to partner with a variety of organizations and businesses to support our community. Our partnerships enable us to expand our reach and provide even more resources and services to those in need.
