Mission: National Firefighters Endowment is a non-profit, public charity with a driving passion to protect the lives of our firefighters. We believe that small actions can have life altering results and that the right equipment in the hands of our heroes can literally be the difference between life and death. You can probably recall being asked as a child what you wanted to do when you grew up. If you are on our site it’s probably because you said something along the lines of a firefighter, or maybe a police man or woman. Probably even an astronaut for a bit. More than likely it wasn’t because you were concerned with your career path or having a JOB. What you really wanted to be was BRAVE, ADVENTUROUS, and to have an impact that was larger than life itself. It is that same child-like ambition that drives National Firefighters Endowment to spark innovative ideas, forge collaborations and shape creative grant-making to ensure that our childhood heroes have the proper equipment to carry on the legend of the fire service and to come home safely to their families.
Results: National Firefighters Endowment was on the ground shortly after Hurricane Sandy to place life-saving equipment that was lost or damaged in the storm.

The National Firefighters Endowment is living proof that a group of focused individuals that may not know each other personally, but only share a common interest/passion, is able to truly make a difference! It doesn't matter of your from a town of 50 people, or a city with 100,000, the NFE is dedicated to serving those who otherwise would not have funds to take care of their own. With today's economy and public service budgets on the chopping block, the NFE is making up the difference. From having apparatus donated/delivered to departments effected by Hurricane Sandy to replacing essential equipment stolen off of Detroit Fire apparatus, one project at a time...they are making positive impacts on those who are answering the calls on a daily basis. I say, with PRIDE, that I am a part of that dofference, and I will always support the NFE. Because they support me!

I was looking for something I could do on a monthly basis and honestly not even think about it. I just wanted to do something good. I found National Firefighters Endowment(NFE) on Facebook a couple of months ago. I signed up for the Officer's club and I couldn't be happier with the amount of joy it's given me to know I am apart of an organization that came to the aide of victims of Hurricane Sandy. I don't know about you, but MY organization gave away a fire engine to a department that needed it really bad. I love the NFE and I will be a lifelong member of the officers club! PTB
