Our Mission: One Line Foundation is organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes in accordance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In particular, One Line Foundation is dedicated to providing financial aid to families of first responders working in San Diego County through educational scholarships, mental and physical health assistance, and memorial funds.
Our Goal: The goal of One Line Foundation is to become the most rewarding local charity giving back to first responders because of their diligence, heroism, and dedication towards improving the local community. Staying local to the San Diego community will allow donors to recognize and appreciate the difference their contributions are making in the lives of our neighborhood first responders.
Our Why: There are countless national organizations that do outstanding charitable work for first responders across the country. However, One Line Foundation seeks to create a connection between our neighborhoods and the men and women serving these communities. In addition, the charity strives to acknowledge the daily hardships and obstacles many first responders experience, even when everything “goes right.” One Line Foundation aspires to act proactively and not wait for a tragedy to occur to make a difference. The lifestyle of a first responder can put a taxing strain on family affairs due to many components of the job. The strenuous hours worked, unfavorable schedules, financial burdens, troubling safety concerns, and the unceasing worry of the overall mental and physical well being of a beloved family member are hurdles that surrender to the profession.
First responders are said to hold the “line” between life and death, good and evil. These lines are represented by various emergency service personnel such as:
Law Enforcement = Thin Blue Line
Fire Departments = Thin Red Line
Emergency Medical Technicians = Thin White Line
One Line Foundation upholds the one-team mentality unifying responsibilities, duties, setbacks, hurdles, and goals of all first responders. Our gold line represents the cohesive efforts that keep our communities safe, secure, and functioning. This non-profit charity aims to partner with our local community to be the positive impact on the future and welfare of San Diego, the place we call home.
