All of the money that we raise as a Colorado chapter stays in Colorado to help the firefighters that serve our communities. This donation might be applied through a firefighter that was killed or injured in the line of duty, a firefighter family member that is sick or has an ambition to get a college education, or the fund might provide some much-needed resources for a small volunteer department with no money for training or equipment. The Terry Fund is a firefighter charity established after the World Trade Center attacks on 9-11. Terry Farrell was serving for the FDNY on Rescue 4 when he was killed during these attacks. Since that time our founder (and Terry’s brother), Brian Farrell, has worked diligently to create a charity that supports firefighters and their families with educational, medical, and equipment needs. We are a national organization and now have active chapters in New York, California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Texas, New Jersey and Colorado. We operate solely on a volunteer basis using predominantly firefighters with some help from friends of the fund.
From the Chairman
Since the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund Colorado Chapter was formed in 2011 we have had amazing successes, learning opportunities and have met some of the most amazing people, firefighters and hearts you can ever imagine. All of these successes are a direct result of the support that you have given to us and all we can say is Thank You! Because of your humbling generosity the Terry Fund of Colorado has granted donations totaling over $74,000 as of January 2014. We have been able to help firefighters and their families in times of celebration, tragedy, and the pursuit of better knowledge, skills, and equipment. While we know money will never replace a loved one or make some of the things that our recipients are going through easier, we believe that it is more than just a check. It is a brotherhood that we are proud to be a part of and we want all firefighters and their family members to know that we are truly here for you.
