FFCF 501c(3) board members

The Fentanyl Free Communities Foundation (FFCF) and Fentanyl Free Communities (FFC) are two separate entities, each with its own unique focus and structure. FFCF is a 501(c)(3) community service nonprofit organization dedicated to educating, raising awareness, and providing support in response to the fentanyl crisis. Its board members actively engage in charitable activities, community outreach, and educational initiatives. 

On the other hand, FFC is a coalition committed to advancing policies and advocating for actions that address the fentanyl epidemic through legislative and political means. Board members of FFC are actively involved in lobbying, policy development, and advocacy efforts. 

Despite operating under different legal frameworks, both organizations share the common goal of combating the fentanyl crisis. They have distinct roles and responsibilities in achieving their respective missions, with a solid commitment to preventing fentanyl poisoning.
