The Rhode Island Association of Fire Chiefs Foundation’s (RIAFC) scholarship program was developed to recruit and retain volunteers in response to a critical need identified by our Association’s volunteer fire departments and emergency medical services providers. The RIAFC scholarship program is funded by a 2018 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant through the Department of Homeland Security.
There are 3 attachments that will explain our grant’s benefits (Chiefs Handout), describe the requirements and process (Admin Guide), and how to request funds (Request Form).
Our Grant Manager is the same team that managed our 1st SAFER Grant. The Adapt Team is always available to answer your questions at either 855-VOLFIRE, or at Benefits@Volunteerfirefighter.org.
The RI Association of Fire Chiefs urge all fire service families to support The 100 club of RI
Many of you may already know, but so many more members of the fire service are unaware of the 100 Club of Rhode Island, and all of the amazing support this organization gives to firefighters and police officers in the State of Rhode Island. The members of this organization support the families of firefighters and police officers who died in the line of duty and much more. Within 24 hours of a line of duty death, a $25,000 check is given to the family for their immediate use, with no restrictions. They also support the children of many firefighters and police officers who apply for educational grants to support their college education.
To further emphasize their support, this fantastic organization has most recently written checks to the RIAFC Foundation totaling $75,000 to support the building of the RI Firefighters Memorial (see pictures below).
We ask you to follow the links below to their website to learn all about the 100 Club, which exists solely to support fire and police families in their time of need.
We now ask that you share this information, and encourage membership to the 100 Club of Rhode Island to all fire service families and friends who would like to be a part of this organization.
The 100 Club presents a $50,000 check to the RIAFC Foundation in June 2019. Since then they have written another $25,000 to the RIAFC Foundation, all $75,000 for the RI Firefighters Memorial.
You will be linked to the dedicated website for brick sales at the RI Firefighters Memorial and you will be able to scroll through the list of over 50 logos representing fire departments and fire service organizations across the state.
