Grants Overview

First Responders Children’s Foundation awards grants to both individuals and public safety agencies.  Grants to individuals support children who have endured financial hardship and whose first responder parents have lost their lives or sustained serious injuries in the line of duty.  Grants to public safety agencies support programs created and operated by first responders that impact children and the communities in which they live.


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 depends on the financial situation of the applicant and on the funds available.

Public Safety Grants

Applicants must be affiliated with a first responder agency or department, and requests should be related to educational activities and programs which benefit children and / or the communities in which they live.



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.
