The Rees Scholarship Foundation facilitates the donation of HVACR equipment from AHRI member companies to schools and training facilities that are accredited and have a tax status that allows accepting charitable donations (of equipment).
To receive donated equipment at no charge, participants must agree to release the manufacturer, testing labs, and AHRI from liability. Since the program's launch in 2001, more than $3 million of equipment has been donated to hundreds of schools and training facilities.
If you are interested in receiving donated HVACR equipment, please fill out an online form. Keep in mind donations should only be used for academic purposes - solely for internal use and not for resale, remarketing, distribution or transfer to any third party.
