Fund the First, Nation’s Only Leading Verified Crowdfunding Platform for Military and First Responders, Celebrates the Value of Veterans

On Veteran’s Day — and in difficult times across the nation — it’s important to find ways to show those who have served our country that they have our support.

That’s where Fund the First comes in.

Fund the First is making a difference in the lives of first responders and veterans who are struggling to live bravely state-side. It is the first verified crowdfunding platform for first responders and military personnel to support veterans and frontline heroes. The platform was started because while first responders are the first to a crisis, many are left behind when tragedy strikes.

Fund the First has many campaigns geared toward supporting current first responders and military veterans across the nation. These individuals need support to help normalize and positively affect lives.

Unlike other crowdfunding platforms, Fund the First pays campaign beneficiaries directly. Their mission is simple: Eliminate fraud and ensure that support reaches first responders in need.

Anyone can start a campaign on Fund the First and the sign up is free. With identification verification technology, Fund the First verifies every campaign to ensure the money raised goes to the first responder or organization it is supposed to.

  • A trusted and secure space to raise funds for first responders and military personnel
