About the NCFF

Who we are and what we do

History of the NCFF

The North Carolina Firefighters Fund was created in 2010 to support the brave men and women firefighters living and working in our state.

The goal of the NC Firefighters Fund is to raise public awareness of firefighters' needs and the roles they play in communities across North Carolina.

Education. Support. Wellness.

Through a combination of corporate and individual donations, the money raised by the NC Firefighters Fund directly impacts firefighters working in communities across North Carolina. The NC Firefighters Fund supports scholarships to finance both continuing education and fire service training for firefighters, as well as higher education for their children. It also funds health and wellness programs to raise firefighters' awareness of vocational health issues.
