Our VisionPutting First Responders First
The Ray Pfeifer Foundation is a 501c3 charitable organization dedicated to assisting September 11th first responders, firefighters and police, with medical needs not covered by insurance. The foundation was established in memory of Ray Pfeifer, a NYC firefighter who died on May 28, 2017 from 9/11 cancer. Ray never stopped putting the needs of others before his own. He was a leading force in lobbying to extend the Zadroga Act through 2090, ensuring health care coverage for 75,000 people who need, or will need, treatment for health conditions developed as a direct result of 9/11 exposure.

Your gift helps. An electric scooter or motorized wheelchair will give someone independence and freedom to get around without relying on others.
My dad was killed on 9/11/01. He and Ray were good friends. When Ray got sick, I know my dad would’ve helped him. It was my turn to step up and be there for my father’s friend, just like he would’ve done for my dad. Ray’s will to fight, until the very last day, continues to resonate with me.Chris Howard
