The Mission of The Front Line FoundationTM, (TFLF) a Minnesota nonprofit organization, is to Back the Badge and support our Fallen Heroes including law enforcement officers, SWAT team members, firefighters, EMTs, and Minnesota National Guard members. TFLF works to provide financial support to those who have died while in the line of duty while serving in the State of Minnesota, by awarding benefit payments to dependents of fallen first responder(s).
The TFLF Badge Membership Program has been initiated by the Foundation Board to bring law enforcement, SWAT team members, firefighters, EMT’s and Minnesota National Guard members together as supporters of TFLF becoming Badge Members. Individual members may join by paying an annual fee of $20. Federations, Unions and other organization’s or departments comprised of law enforcement officers, SWAT Teams, firefighters, EMTs and members of the Minnesota National Guard may enroll all of their members through a special negotiated rate.
