Host Charity: Last Call Foundation

The Last Call Foundation was born of the determination to ensure that tragedies such as the one on March 26, 2014 never happen again. The mission of the Last Call Foundation is to provide funding, education and research to advance the safety needs of the Boston firefighting community. We are committed to enhancing the ability of our dedicated firefighting professionals to effectively and safely fight fires and protect the public. The Last Call Foundation was founded by Kathy Crosby-Bell in honor of her son, fallen Firefighter Michael Kennedy, who along with Lieutenant Edward Walsh died battling the nine-alarm fire on March 26, 2014 in Boston’s Back Bay. This tragedy highlighted the unique challenges facing firefighters. The Last Call Foundation is committed to identifying and addressing these challenges to enhance firefighters’ ability to safely and effectively fight fires and protect each of us. With your help, we can avoid future tragedy and, hopefully, save lives. The Last Call Foundation is committed to supporting firefighters everywhere because every firefighter is a hero every day.

We specialize in “Putting the Financial Pieces of your Life Together”.

Our Perspective

Whether we like it or not, taxes are a part of our lives. From the birth of our children, to the passing of our parents, our tax situations change and evolve. Going to college, starting or changing a job, a new home, a better home, all of these events in our everyday lives are touched by ever changing tax laws. When you make important life decisions about home, work and family, you seek out the advice and knowledge of your friends, relatives and peers. You wouldn’t make such big decisions alone and when it comes to preparing your taxes year after year, you want to make sure that all of those goals in your ever changing life are being protected and supported.
