We support the children and families of our First Responder heroes who risk their lives every day in service to our communities.

When a first responder is killed or injured in the line of duty, we ensure their children and families receive the support they need.

What's New

Help us help them

First Responders Children’s Foundation provides financial support to children who have lost a parent in the line of duty as well as families enduring significant financial hardship due to tragic circumstances.
We also support, promote, and facilitate educational activities and programs created and operated by first responder organizations whose purpose is to benefit children or the community at large.
