Formed during World War II as the "Women's Auxiliary," we obtained formal IRS non-profit status in 2005 as the "Friendship Ambulance Auxiliary Foundation" or FAAF. Funded entirely by private tax-deductible donations, we are engaged in many projects designed to improve the overall health of Friendship residents. These projects include funding the town's yearly free vaccination and health clinic, providing medical alert buttons for seniors who are unable to afford them, sponsoring EMT and CPR training, and funding emergency ambulance transports for needful patients. In 2016, we also provided 90% of the funds to purchase a town fire and rescue boat.
Over the last 10 years, our principal funds have steadily diminished. Our long-term plan is to replenish the principal to allow us to continue funding these and other health projects in town in perpetuity, based on spending only interest earned from our accounts.
