Milton First Responders Foundation
Established in 2015, the Milton First Responder’s Foundation (MFRF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. The MFRF Board is comprised of civic and business leaders that serve on a volunteer basis to provide support to the Milton Police and Fire employees and their families.
Our Mission is to encourage and strengthen the partnership between the citizens of Milton and our public safety first responders. MFRF is dedicated to providing critical resources to those who make the city of Milton a safe place to live, work and visit. Public safety cannot rest on the shoulders of law enforcement and firefighters alone. As much as we all need the police and firefighters, they need our support as well. MFRF raises funds for programs through a variety of events that are sponsored through donations from local businesses, civic organizations, neighborhoods, and individuals.
Our Purpose is “To strengthen the partnership between the citizens of Milton and our public safety first responders.”
Our Vision is to sustain an ongoing program to provide support in the following areas, including but not limited to:
▪ Providing financial assistance for first responders injured or killed in the line of duty or enduring a family hardship.
▪ Recognizing Milton firefighter and police officer heroes who demonstrate exceptional skill, expertise, innovation,
▪ bravery and commitment to keeping Milton safe.
▪ Purchasing supplementary or unbudgeted equipment and training materials to keep Milton’s first responders
performing at the highest level of productivity and preparedness
Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood
“Once again, Milton citizens have stepped forward to fill an important need. By enhancing the bonds between our community and police and fire personnel, The Milton First Responders Foundation will help our dedicated public servants do their job better to keep us safer. The money the MFRF raises can make a huge difference — and our first responders will have a stronger feeling of support from the community they serve.”
Milton Fire Chief Robert Edgar
“The Milton First Responders Foundation is a great public, private partnership that will support Milton Fire and Police employees with the acquisition of equipment through grant requests. In addition, the foundation will be there when one of our own needs assistance. Each day our fire and police employees unselfishly serve the Milton community,
but there are times when these civil servants need assistance and it is comforting to know that the MFRF will be there for
them in their time of need”.
Milton Police Chief Austin
“The establishment of the Milton First Responders Foundation has forged a
valuable connection between our
tremendously supportive community
members and our exceptional first responders. By working together through the foundation,
we not only strengthen our public safety capabilities, but we may also provide much needed support to families of police and fire personnel during times of crises. We are very fortunate to have such an organization working so diligently in partnership with us for the benefit of the Milton community.”
