First responders put their lives on the line every day.
Our Story »
We partner directly with police and fire departments to serve and honor first responders and their families, build appreciation and respect for their work, and enhance public safety.
Join us in showing first responders that we appreciate their dedicated service and don’t take them for granted by volunteering to help support the cause. Volunteer opportunities include fundraising, helping at great events, delivering lunches on Police and Fire Appreciation Day, and lending your support or area of expertise to the foundation!
We support three core programs in addition to 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 Omaha’s police and fire chiefs to determine the immediate needs of each department and fulfill wish lists.
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.
