As a family, we were raised to appreciate the sacrifices of the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to the service of others. With a firefighter and an Air Force pilot among the brothers, we understand firsthand the risks our public servants take each and every day, the hardships endured by our loved ones, and the joy that comes from a life of service.
Since the first Tribute release, we have raised over $125,000 to support the mission of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation which honors our nation’s fallen fire heroes, assists their families, and works to prevent line-of-duty deaths and injuries.
The United States Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to remember America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the tax-exempt, nonprofit Foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor our fallen fire heroes and assist their families and coworkers. NFFF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, located in Emmitsburg, Maryland and is registered as a corporation in the State of Maryland. NFFF receives funding through private donations from caring individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations.
A grant from the Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Assistance supports programs for survivors of fallen firefighters. The Federal Emergency Management Agency partners with the Foundation to sponsor many of the National Memorial Weekend activities. The National Institute of Standards and Technology supports work on a national research agenda to prevent line-of-duty deaths.
