After hearing the news of the Boston Marathon bombings, Garth Roberts, founder and now President of Hero Fund America, answered a personal call to action to recognize the First Responders whose heroism and selflessness saved countless lives on that day.

Being founded and grounded in service to emergency responders is central to the purpose of Hero Fund America. Our organization views itself as a facilitator whose work involves collaboration with community partners. Hero Fund America believes that the process of community engagement will produce substantive by-products such as education and advocacy that will further our mission. Facilitators rather than producers, Hero Fund America seeks to create outcomes that are sustainable and broad in order to best serve and honor emergency responders. The HFA endowment fund supports education, training and equipment needs for EMS, Fire and Law Enforcement Agencies.
