100% Model

Donating to most nonprofits

The average nonprofit spends nearly 66% of public donations on "overhead expenses" that include salaries, general expenses, and fundraising costs.

What this means

For every $1.00 donated, only $0.34 is actually given to those you intended to help.

Donating to FRBA

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."

What this means

For every $1.00 donated, a family receives $1.00. It's that simple.


How It Works

Notification of Loss

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).

Needs Analysis

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.

Hope Shows Up

The FRBA grief liaison meets on site with the family and the agency of the fallen First Responder.

Grief Support

The FRBA grief liaison provides hope-giving financial and emotional support to the family and the agency.
