Through the funds raised from various events, the Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation is able to fund a variety of worthy causes in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area.
The Foundation has a specific interest in awarding grants to non-profits focused on education, recreation, and providing financial assistance to the families of fallen first responders.
The Foundation’s Immediacy Grant Program is designed to provide up to $10,000 in direct financial support to the family of any first responder who is killed or severely injured in the line of duty in the Philadelphia and South Jersey area.
Police Youth Alliance
Since 2015, the FBBCF has spearheaded an original citywide initiative called the "Police Youth Alliance." Aimed at cultivating positive relationships and interactions between police officers and the children in the communities they serve, PYA puts uniformed officers in local schools to engage in student-friendly enrichment activities such as gardening, chess, step, reading, drumline, and carpentry.
