I've observed first hand the work that is done by this organization. No group works harder for Fire Departments, the Fire Fighter or their families. When you support the "Terry Fund" you support the entire Fire Service Community.

The Terry Farrell Fund is an amazing non profit! They assist firefighters and their families with educational, equipment, and medical needs. Because all of their members are volunteer, almost 100% goes back into the community, assisting these individuals when it is needed most. I have been at several fundraisers for this group. I also have seen how their financial, as well as, moral support has helped firefighters who have been injured on the job. It is awesome to see the passion and heart they have for helping others in need. They give back to those who give so freely and selflessly to their communities. This is why I will continue to support the Terry Farrell Fund any way I can.

The Terry Farrell Foundation has assisted a dear friend of mine that has Stage 4 Liver Cancer. My friend has approximately 8 months to live and it was his request to go to Ground Zero with his family before his failed. I had knowledge of this group and had a couple of contacts and we spoke. The Terry Farrell Foundation made this possible for my friend to go not only to Ground Zero but to also have a VIP tour of ground Zero with the Executive Director Lee Ieliphil giving this tour. In addition to they were able to meet the crew at Rescue 5 and had a tour of the City. This was all coordinated and arranged with 3 hours of the first point of contact. A Fundraiser is being held for my friend and these guys were the first to jump onboard with helping. This is a outstanding group of individuals and should recieve the grant to continue the efforts that they do.

I support any foundation that is out there to care for the men and women who protect us everyday and their families. This foundation has helped so many and continues to support families in need. Keeping Education available for those in need is especially important to me, Keep up the good work!

The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund is dedicated to helping families of firefighters injured or killed in the line of duty. This amazing group of people, who consist of firefighters throughout the country, selfishly give their time, energy and resources to host fundraisers and give that money back to those in need in the states they serve. Up to nine chapters and growing, the TFFFund is dedicated to keeping the memory of the late Terry Farrell alive. Terry and 342 of his firefighting brothers died at the WTC in New York. I have seen first hand how the California and Colorado chapters have brought people together for a great non-profit and and even greater mission. Long live the fund!

I was able to learn from the Terry Fund with a College Scholarship! I have done research on all the great things that the fund has done and continues to do all across the country from giving equipment to fire houses to helping families with medical needs. Always giving a helping a hand! GREAT!! They have offered a great amount of grants to students going to college and they have such a positive outlook!
