Annual Grants

The Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation’s guidelines reflect a continuous evolution of grantmaking to local children’s charities. The foundation has a specific interest in awarding grants to non-profits focused on child education and recreation, and providing financial assistance to the families of fallen first responders. Funding priority is given to applicants who meet the criteria and are voted through the Families Behind the Badge Children’s Foundation and its board. 

The FBBCF is also proud to offer grants in the name of The Ben to the Shore Bike Tour teams who reach our team incentive levels. Click here for more information about our team incentive levels.
