Your donation helps save lives

It's distressing but true: Someone dies from heart disease, stroke or another cardiovascular disease every 43 seconds in this country.

When you donate to the American Heart Association, you are joining us in the fight against our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers – heart disease and stroke.

Your contribution will support such life-saving efforts as research, education, advocating for better health, improving patient care and reaching the millions of people at risk. Your generosity brings us one step closer to a world free of heart disease and stroke.

In short, you’re helping to save lives.
