Fund the First’s Fallen First Reserve is a special fund that is used to help pay the final expenses of the passing of a first responder. Your contributions to this fund are held in escrow until used in a time of need. Upon notification of a line of duty death, or any other fallen first responder or military member, a representative from Fund the First will coordinate directly with the employer of the fallen. Once next of kin is determined, our goal is to give $5,000 immediately to the family. When feasible, a Fund the First representative will hand deliver the check directly to the family member. Help us honor these heroes, as they have paid the ultimate sacrifice while providing an altruistic service to society.
