The Fire Family Foundation emanated from the events of 9/11 when over 340 New York City Firefighters were lost in the World Trade Center attacks. Firefighters First Credit Union was entrusted with charitable donations made by members of the Fire Service and the community. Millions of dollars were donated to the Credit Union to support the New York City Firefighters and their families. The incredible response resulted in the vision to establish a nonprofit Foundation focused on serving the firefighting community.
Established in 2008, Fire Family Foundation is committed to providing financial assistance, scholarships, and financial education to fire families while supporting other 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.
