American Heart Association
The American Heart Association — now in its 96th year — is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke, the two leading causes of death in the world. In New Hampshire, heart disease and stroke annually claim the lives of nearly 2,500 and 500 residents, respectively. The nation’s leader in CPR education training, the Association teams with volunteers and community partners to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving information to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Join us to raise awareness, educate the public, raise funds for research, and promote health and well-being for all. Our upcoming events include:
All events listed below will be digital experiences:

Donations help fund lifesaving research, advocate for better health, improve patient care and reach at-risk populations. Personal donations, memorials and tributes, corporate gifts, event sponsorships and workplace giving are just a few ways to support the Association’s efforts to improve the health of our schools, families, businesses and communities. Nearly 80 cents of every dollar raised supports research, education and community outreach. As the largest, private nonprofit funding source for cardiovascular disease and stroke research next to the federal government, the Association has invested more than $4.1 billion in research since 1949 to enhance our knowledge of cardiovascular diseases and stroke and has funded 13 Nobel Prize winners.
The American Heart Association depends on the time and talent of volunteers to help create a healthier world. Millions of volunteers — including thousands in New Hampshire — help fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat disease.
Whatever your capabilities, interests or schedule may be, the Association can find a volunteer opportunity that’s right for you. Visit Heart.org/NewHampshire.
