“The fact is, each day, brave men and women face danger defending our families and neighbors in potentially dangerous life-and-death situations – in our very own backyards.”

The Front Line Foundation began as an attempt to help and support our Fallen Heroes, including Law Enforcement Officers, SWAT teams, Firefighters, EMTs, and the Minnesota National Guard. We provide support to those who died while in the line of duty, by giving benefit payments to dependents of fallen first responders.

The fact is, each day, brave men and women face danger defending our families and neighbors in potentially dangerous life-and death-situations – in our very own backyards.

SWAT Team Members, Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, and EMT First Responders face armed and dangerous criminals, impaired individuals wielding weapons, even emotionally charged and threatening domestic disputes. They are the Front Line Defenders of our neighborhoods, towns, and cities who face and diffuse the high-risk, frequently appalling situations we know or hear about, with disbelief, on the news.

Unfortunately, men and women who serve us often lack the right safety equipment, need training, and often give their lives as they intervene and save others. That’s why we started the Front Line Foundation.

In addition to providing endowments and support for the families of fallen heroes, The Front Line Foundation will underwrite scholarships and training registration costs for Front Line personnel as well as support preparedness training for safety officers in hospitals, schools, and places of worship.

Further, we assist with the purchase of needed safety and tactical equipment not currently within the budget of the local unit of government.

Thanks for visiting the Front Line Foundation!
