Our Mission:

To build the only verified crowdfunding platform for first responders.

The internet is an amazing tool for communication and has enabled people in need to seek and accept contributions from people they could never reach before. Unfortunately, this has also led to a considerable amount of fraud, particularly in the category of “first responders.” Claiming to be a first responder immediately gives you a level of attention and sympathy not afforded in more generic cases. As a result, many of the campaigns seen on large donation sites, upon closer examination, turn out to be frauds. Fund the First is creating a platform and community to combat that fraud and provide actual first responders a trusted place to seek the assistance they deserve.

Fund the First needs your support to get started!

Our verified crowdfunding platform for benefiting first responders has not launched yet, but we are actively seeking sponsors to help get our vision off the ground. If you are interested in sponsoring to help support our launch, click here.
