We are dedicated to upholding our mission to serve and honor all our First Responders and their families. That’s why we created the Awards of Excellence program. We believe that it takes a special type of person to become a first responder and want to be a public servant. We award scholarships to college-bound children of First Responders who have demonstrated commitment to community and volunteerism.

The First Responders Foundation presents $500 Awards of Excellence to high school seniors each spring.
