Grants Overview

First Responders Children’s Foundation provides emergency grants to support children who have endured financial stresses as a result of their first responder parents who have lost their lives or sustained serious injuries in the line of duty that prevent them from working. Industry grants benefit local first responder departments that support programs, equipment needs for children, and public safety education.


Individual Grants

Awards are designated to answer a specific financial need due to tragic circumstances.  Please demonstrate and document the financial need.  The amount of the grant varies and depends on the current financial state of the applicant and on the total amount of funds available.

Industry Grants

Applicants must be affiliated with a first responder agency or department. Grant requests should be related to educational activities and programs which benefit children within the community.



Applicants will be selected by committee.    Current First Responders Children’s Foundation officers, committee members, employees,

and members of their immediate families are not eligible.  Applicants must reside in the United States.
