20th Anniversary Journal

Members of The Uniformed Firefighters Association and the community have two opportunities to support the Campaign to raise funds for the Widows & Childrens Fund, UFA Scholarship Fund, and the Thomas R. Elsasser Fund. Firehouses and Partners may contribute to the 20th Anniversary Journal that will honor and remember the 343 members who made the ultimate sacrifice and the 251 members that have since fallen victim to WTC-related illnesses.

Widows & Childrens Fund

The funds are deposited directly into the Widows and Children’s Fund account and distributed directly to the families of our Fallen Firefighters.

UFA Scholarship Fund

This scholarship is for dependent children of active, retired, or deceased Firefighters, Fire Marshals, Marine Wipers, Marine Engineers & Pilots who are full-time students up to and including age 23 for undergraduate education.

Thomas R. Elsasser Fund

The Thomas R. Elsasser Fund was established in 1992 to support the families of NYC Firefighters who died Non-Line of Duty as active members of the FDNY. The funds are used to help with their medical costs, housing and repairs, and school tuitions to name a few.

The men and women of the FDNY put their lives on the line every day to protect the citizens of New York. We are challenging you to consider supporting the families of these brave men and women by donating to the campaign. With your help, we can support these families who don't have FDNY pensions or medical coverage. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by emailing challengecoin@ufanyc.org.

Thank you for your continued support!
