First Responder Benefit Association

The Hard Truth... Each month, an average of 21 First Responders sacrifice all in the line of duty. This leads to a double tragedy as their families are often plunged into financial and emotional hardship, with many relying on bake sales and fundraisers—only to barely keep their heads above water. We’re grateful for the bake sales, but they fall short of the true immediate needs of the families of fallen First Responders. So we’ve created FRBA to do something about it. The Bright Light... When a First Responder tragically perishes in the line of duty, FRBA steps in to provide hope-giving financial and emotional support to the family and the agency. Through your generosity, we’re able to gift each family with $7,500 that is distributed to their most immediate needs through our “Needs Analysis”. 100% Giving Model... Key sponsors like First Responder Task Force, have committed to funding all of our administrative and overhead expenses - making it possible for 100% of the public donations we receive to go directly to serving the families of fallen First Responders. The average nonprofit spends nearly 66% of public donations on administrative and overhead expenses that include salaries, general expenses, and fundraising costs. This means for every $1.00 donated, only $0.34 is actually given to those you intended to help. With our 100% Giving Model, for every $1.00 donated, a family receives $1.00. It's that simple. Our Goal... By 2025, our goal is to be an immediate source of financial and emotional support to 100% of families impacted by the loss of a First Responder who lost their life in the line of duty.
