To serve the families of those who put themselves in harm's way
To be an immediate source of financial and emotional support for the families of fallen First Responders
Loyalty and Responsibility through Generosity
The average nonprofit spends nearly 66% of public donations on "overhead expenses" that include salaries, general expenses, and fundraising costs.
For every $1.00 donated, only $0.34 is actually given to those you intended to help.
We've taken a rare approach of ensuring that 100% of the public donations we receive go directly to serving First Responders and their families. None of it goes towards "overhead expenses."
For every $1.00 donated, a family receives $1.00. It's that simple.
When a First Responder tragically perishes in the line of duty their family will notify FRBA (confirmed by agency leadership, an obituary, or a news article).
An FRBA grief liaison will reach out to the main support person for the family of the fallen hero to do a needs analysis and determine qualification.
The FRBA grief liaison meets on site with the family and the agency of the fallen First Responder.
The FRBA grief liaison provides hope-giving financial and emotional support to the family and the agency.
Each month, an average of 21 First Responders sacrifice all in the line of duty.
Through your generosity, FRBA is there to ease the financial and emotional strain of the families of these fallen heroes.
