Our team consists of individuals from the same communities in which we serve. We’ve experienced hardships firsthand and the different challenges that are present in this community. We founded Fund the First to provide those who serve with a trusted place to get the support they need, when they need it.

How it works:

Fund the First is a simple and trusted way to support those who serve. Every crowdfunding campaign is verified to ensure the donor’s money goes to the intended person. Using our secure online platform, you can create, manage and promote verified crowdfunding campaigns to raise money in times of need. Our mission is simple: Eliminate fraud and provide a trusted platform and community for those who serve to receive the support they need.

Create a Campaign

Sign up for Free. Fund the First campaigns can be created by anyone and anyone can be a contributor. It takes just two minutes to sign up and make a lifetime of difference.

Get Verified

We verify the status of every campaign beneficiary using, the industry’s leading identity verification technology.

Receive Payment

Fund the First exists to ensure the right people receive contributions. Once a campaign is complete, we distribute contributions directly to the verified and designated beneficiary – whether the goal is reached or not.

Why Fund the First?

The internet is an amazing place to connect with others. But, as we become more connected, we also become more vulnerable — especially to online fraud. Claiming to be a first responder, military, nurse, medical provider or teacher immediately gives you a level of attention and sympathy. As a result, many of the campaigns seen on large crowdfunding sites are actually scams. At Fund the First, we’ve developed the only platform that combats fraud while providing those who serve with a trusted place to get the support they deserve.

Our Mission

Those who serve our communities experience illnesses, surgeries and other catastrophic losses more often than other occupations. We founded Fund the First to empower our first responder, military, nurse, medical provider and teacher communities with financial resources in times of need. Together, we can give back to those who give everything for us each day. Get involved and help us Fund the First!
