First Responders Benevolent Care Fund

Established 2013

first_responders.pngIn early 2013, the First Responders Benevolent Care Foundation was established to raise and distribute needed financial resources for the dedicated “Brothers & Sisters” in FIRE/EMS who are living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other Neurological Disorders.  As public servants committed to assisting others in their time of need, many of these “Heroes” are now in need of help themselves.

Please prayerfully consider making your donation today.  It’s with your help that the FRBC Foundation can make a real difference in the lives of those “Brothers  & Sisters” battling Multiple Sclerosis and other debilitating Neurological Disorders.  With your support, the FRBC Foundation will be able to provide the financial assistance needed to combat the unpredictable challenges that present themselves each and every day.

Thank you for getting involved and for your commitment.

A website dedicated to First Responders with Neurological Disorders is coming soon to

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

Richard and Susan Schindel Scholarship Funds

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.
