Created By Fire Fighters For Fire Fighters, the IAFF Foundation is expanding its philanthropic efforts with a new look, new leadership and more ways to help IAFF members and their families in times of need.
With a new design and easy-to-navigate website, the IAFF Foundation is giving those with generous hearts more opportunities to help IAFF members and in their communities.
“IAFF members are on the frontlines every day, putting the needs of others before their own,” says General President Edward Kelly. “But what happens when they are the ones who need help? The IAFF Foundation is here to assist our members following natural disasters, burn injuries and occupational illness, as well as to provide scholarships to children of fallen fire fighters and assist families attending the annual Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial service.”
The IAFF Foundation relies on charitable contributions to fund its important mission: To Help Those Who Help Others. Programs funded by the IAFF Foundation include Disaster Relief, Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial, Burn Support and Summer Camp, Survivor Scholarships, Behavioral Health and Wellness and Occupational Cancer Support.
“I am proud to support the IAFF Foundation’s mission to assist those who put their lives on the line every day to help others. From cancer to trauma exposure, from natural disasters to burn injury, IAFF members can depend on the Foundation to be there for them,” says Deputy Director of Foundation Management for the IAFF Foundation Jenny Hanie.
