What is the GFPD Equipment Exchange Program? 

The GFPD Equipment Exchange Program has been a hallmark program of our Foundation  since our incorporation in 2010. The program matches families and patients with  equipment or supply needs to other families or patients who have medical equipment they  are no longer using to fulfill that need. 

The GFPD Equipment Exchange is for free items only. No sales will take place through the  Equipment Exchange program. Families can request reimbursement of up to $60 for items  shipped through the equipment exchange program to other families. 

Exceptions may be made on a one-off basis to provide reimbursement for larger items  exceeding the $60 limit. Please reach out to us at the email listed below for circumstances  requiring additional shipping costs beyond the $60 limit. 

How do I view items currently available for GFPD families?
