who we are

The Athletes to First Responder Charitable Fund Inc. was created to financially support  Firefighters Institute for Racial Equality (F.I.R.E.) Retiree’s  Captain George Baker Scholarship

The Captain George Baker Scholarship Fund is awarding several members of the community a scholarship to pay (approx. $500.00 up to $1800.00) per semester of an EMT course. An EMT-B (Emergency Medical Technician-Basic) license is a critical link in the chain of the health care team in the form of pre-hospital emergency care. This is also a prerequisite for jobs such as Fire Fighting or a Paramedic.

We have partnered with the Forest Park Community College and Foundation to identify and support potential students with our scholarship and additional opportunities for other funds through their foundation. We have recently supported the Northeast EMS & Fire Protection District EMT Program and will continue our support of their program in the future. 

Our scholarships are administered during the spring, summer and fall semesters based on the number of students that we have recruited and finances that we have available. 

*We are looking for young people in underserved areas of the St. Louis Metropolitan area to be a recipient of a scholarship to become an EMT, Paramedic, or obtain any certifications that our scholarship supports.”
