Ritch Foundation Supporting FDNY Foundation posted on March 22, 2022 Visit The FDNY Foundation, established in 1981, is the official not-for-profit of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY). Our mission is to promote fire and life safety education and help the FDNY better protect New York. The FDNY Foundation funds programs that advance the FDNY’s goals, which include maintaining operational excellence, reaching out to the community with an array of fire and life safety programs, and ensuring that our firefighters and EMS personnel have the best available training and equipment. The Ritch Foundation provided a donation to support the Children’s Scholarship Fund. The funds go to cover the educational expenses of NYFD Fire Fighters who have passed away. This a great cause we are proud to support.
