Foundation for Wildland Firefighters

The Eric Marsh Foundation is committed to serving the wildland firefighting community.

Please make a donation today to the Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters. Your donations directly aid families of wildland firefighters killed in-the-line-of-duty. Thank you!

The Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters stands apart from other Non-profits similar to us, in that the people involved with our Foundation have first-hand experience in loss of a Wildland Firefighter in the line of duty. We understand heartbreak at its deepest level, and we have the ability and resources to help others dealing with the same loss and trauma. 

We are committed to serving those directly affected by wildland line-of-duty deaths and living wildland firefighters and their families.

Our roots are in wildfire because we have been on the line and married to hotshots.  We understand the community and we believe in and support the job!  We are here to support the wildland community in whatever ways we are being called to serve.

Service can mean responding to tragedies to help families.  It can mean giving financial support to pay for the complex situations after a fatality, but also the simplest gestures like flowers or a card.  As much as we can do, we will do.  If you need to talk to someone who understands what you’re going through, we are here for that, too.  This is our way of paying it forward.

We offer emotional support for wildland firefighters affected by tragedy or the normal stresses of the job.  Working in stride with your insurance, we can help cover grief/trauma therapy sessions.

Please support us, 100% of your donations are distributed to the next of kin of a Wildland Firefighter killed in the line of duty.  

Every dollar donated to Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters will be directly used to aid a wildland firefighter or family member in need.

This organization was created to honor Eric’s life and his spirit of giving. We are determined to carry on his  passion for helping the Wildland community.    

The Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters is a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt foundation.
