About the Fire Family Foundation
Established in 2008, Fire Family Foundation is committed to providing financial assistance to fire families in need, scholarships, and financial education while supporting fire charities nationwide. Firefighters are in service to all of our communities. They show up when we need assistance, generally in some of our most vulnerable times. Through medical emergencies, fires, and national disasters, we depend upon firefighters to help us. We believe in helping them and their families to the extent possible during their times of need. The Foundation is committed to these men and women who unselfishly give so much of themselves, often at great risk and impact to family life.
Fire Family Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the charitable hand of Firefighters First Credit Union. Contributions are tax deductible. Tax ID # 36-4613248.
