About Us

The IAFF Foundation was started by fire fighters, for fire fighters and is committed to ensuring no fire fighter or EMS professional fights alone. The resources and programs provided by the Foundation are dedicated to the health, safety, and well-being of those who put their lives on the line for others.

The Foundation directly supports fire fighters and EMS professionals by providing disaster relief, behavioral health resources, burn injury assistance, survivor scholarships, cancer support and research, and by funding the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial and the Young Burn Survivor Summit.

Our members are on the frontlines every day, putting the needs of others before their own. But what happens when they are the ones who need help? The IAFF Foundation is here to assist our members in the aftermath of natural disasters, burn injuries and trauma. The Foundation also helps the families of our members who pay the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
