Formed after the tragic events of 9/11, the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund is one of the few volunteer organizations who serve our firefighers with no hidden political agenda. Money raised in each state stays in that state and is used to assist any public safety or military family. Learning of the fund several years ago, contact was made with Fund Chairman Brian Farrell. A chapter was opened in my state, California, and we have donated over $30,000 in three years. I am proud to be a part of this organization and have the ability to make a difference. Please vote for the Terry Farrell Fund!

The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund has allowed me to help my fellow brothers. The Georgia Chapter just held it's 2nd annual Stair Climb that not only brought fellow firefighters together to remember 9/11 but also the community. Community members have participated each year and take this opportunity to educate their children about the events of 9/11. The GA chapter has helped multiple firefighters and their families in times of need. It has also donated firefighting equipment to programs that need assistance. Most recently the Georgia Chapter donated helmets to the Cobb County FD explorer program. Which is a program that educates high school students on a possible future career in the fire service. I am proud to be a part of this organization and look forward to future of our organization. Please give us an opportunity to help more.

The Terry Farrell Firefighter Fund has 14 Chapters nationwide. Our Fund is here to assist firefighters and their families with educational, medical, and equipment needs. All of us are volunteers. We run our Chapters on 3% annual budget giving 97% of all money raised back to the firefighters that serve in their States. The Fund has donated over $1,000,000 since it was started in 2002. The Georgia Chapter of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund was established in February 2011. The Georgia Chapter has donated $8,500.00 and has given surplus fire equipment to Fire Explorers who are the future of the Fire Service.

The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund has spread its giving throughout the nation, giving thousand of dollars to firefighters and their families during tragic times. With little to no overhead costs it allows the money raised through fundraising and donations to be 'funneled' directly to those in need for full benefit. With new chapters being established throughout the nation it allows the millions of firefighters across the country to benefit when the need arises. As a board member of the Colorado Chapter I have seen first hand how the Fund has personally touched and benefited firefighters and their families. Without the strong leadership and guidance of Brian Farrell this wouldn't succeed. This truly is a top notch non-profit with a wonderful mission.

the Terry Fund has helped small depts across the south with equipment and apparatus that would other wise be impossible for the dept. to buy. They are all volunteer and all for the fire service. It is hard to belive in this day and age that there really is a group out there that really just wants to help with no big overhead or paid staff. they have no big paper work or details just ask for help and they are there. They are the best!
