The Forster Foundation is a Central Ohio nonprofit organization dedicated to serving first responders and their families.
The job of a first responder is tough enough, but sometimes life circumstances make it even tougher. That is why The Forster Foundation is here to help. We provide emergency financial assistance to first responder families that are facing unforeseen hardships. Everything from mental health issues, financial crisis, medical conditions, physical injuries, death of a child or spouse, and on or off duty death of a first responder.
