The Memorial Villages First Responder Relief Fund was established in recognition of the sacrifices that our first responders make every day in serving our communities. The mission of the fund is to provide relief to the Memorial Villages’ first responders who are themselves victims of disasters or suffer other emergency hardships. The first responders serve the Memorial Villages through the Hedwig Village Police Department, the Memorial Villages Police Department, and the Village Fire Department.
The fund was established in 2017 in anticipation of losses and financial hardships first responders might experience as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The fund received generous support from residents, businesses, and friends of the Memorial Villages.
The fund remains in place to provide financial assistance to the Memorial Villages’ first responders who may face future emergency hardships.
The Memorial Villages First Responder Relief Fund is administered, and grants must be approved, by the Board. Grant requests are made by the chiefs of the various first responder organizations supported by the fund. If you have questions regarding donations, the use of donations, or the administration of the fund, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the exception of relatively small administrative fees, we expect 100% of donations to go to grant recipients.
We appreciate the generous support of Baker Botts L.L.P., who has provided legal services on a pro bono basis in connection with the formation of the fund, Belt Harris Pechacek LLLP who provides ongoing audit and tax services to the fund, and the mayor and staff at the City of Bunker Hill Village who handled administration of the fund for the first three years of its existence on a pro bono basis.
The fund is a Texas non-profit corporation and is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
