Application Process & Requirements


Our staff meets regularly to review email applications from qualified organizations working with at-risk and/or underprivileged children or organizations working with special-needs children.

Organization Requirements

All applicant organizations must be located and operating in the United States. Your organization must also sign a Release Waiver/Offer Letter document (should one be presented to your organization) absolving Board Rescue from any and all liability claims resulting from use of the equipment donated.
