Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Disaster Aid

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.

I have been with the NFE for the last year it is amazing to watch what the team at the NFE is doing and seeing it grow to what it is today. I am honored to be able to help this organization fulfill its mission expecially after Sandy. They have done great things on the east coast and I look forward to the coming years.
