Here's what first responders, campaign organizers, and contributors had to say about Fund the First.
Dan Bruno

On Thanksgiving morning, a sergeant on my job suffered a terrible tragedy when his son, a firefighter, was killed in his house when a fire broke out. Members of my department felt helpless knowing that there was nothing we could do to ease the pain he and his family were going through. We decided to start a fundraiser in order to support his family through this terrible ordeal. Having never started a crowdfunding campaign before, I was unsure what to do or how to go about it. I looked into several different sites including Go Fund Me, but ultimately I was concerned about scams and phnoy fundraisers on that platform. Being that this tragedy affected a family of first responders, we decided to go with Fund The First. I set up the campaign on the Fund The First website, but I was still unsure if I made the right decision. Shortly after setting it up I received a call from the CEO of Fund The First, Rob Garland. Rob guided me through the process of establishing the fundraiser and made several recommendations for how to better run the campaign. As soon I spoke to Rob I knew that we made the right decision in choosing Fund The First. We felt comfortable using the platform knowing that it required ID verification which prevents scams. Ultimately, the amount of support that we received for the family was overwhelming. Iā€™d like to thank Rob and the Fund The First community for giving us a platform to provide support, both financially and emotionally, for first responders in need.

Fund the First is a great, easy, and secure way to fundraise for any cause. Without their platform and the generosity of so many amazing people, I do not think it would have been possible to raise the amount of money that we did in such short period of time. The platform is very user friendly and staff was there to answer any questions I had along the way. Yesterday afternoon, my Father received a handicap accessible vehicle that for the longest time he could only dream of. Fund the First helped make it a reality for my family and we are forever grateful for all who assisted.

With all of the fraud that goes on online, to have a platform like Fund the First for supporting first responders is a huge welcome!

Fund the First is a sure fire šŸ”„ way to raise money for a person in need that is 100 percent legit. Fund the First is vetted against others that may attempt to fraudulently collect money for nefarious purposes. Bill Cannon, šŸ‘® Off the Cuff Podcast.

Fund The First is a great way to give back to our brothers and sisters in red, white, blue and green when they are going through some of there toughest time. These men and women give there days to make ours more safe. Unfortunately some people will take advantage of first responders and militaries tragedy and use platforms like GoFundMe to raise money off there stories. Fund The First is a safe place to help these amazing people that give so much to the community! I love fund the first, the mission, there story and there team. I highly recommend this site! God bless you all!

The work fund the first does is so important. Supporting our first responders is an absolute necessity. Robert is a true professional with a clear vision of what is needed to make a difference in the lives of those who serve. His efforts improve communities across America šŸ‡ŗšŸ‡ø
