Where do donations go?

We have core programs in addition to organizing community events and initiatives and providing vital resources and equipment as requested by the police and fire departments. The items we donate are not provided for in the city budget and we work directly with police and fire chiefs to determine the immediate needs of each department and fulfill wish lists.

Are you the telephone solicitors calling and ask for money?

No, we never solicit funds in this manner. Typically, with those types of organizations, only a small percentage is donated to the actual cause. We encourage you to consider a donation directly to our foundation.

Who are the Boosters?

The Boosters invites you to become an ongoing supporter of the First Responders Foundation’s mission and programs. For an annual membership of just $60 per year, you can show your support and help “Thank” First Responders. We invite everyone to join our growing community and become a booster!
