Welcome to the FDNY Firefighter John F. McNamara Foundation
The Johnny Mac Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed by John’s wife, Jennifer after his death in August 2009 of 9/11 related cancer. John was an FDNY Firefighter and caring for others was what he did. In a list of final wishes, John asked to have a community center built in Blue Point, NY. John envisioned a place where the community could come together; a place that would be safe and fun for the kids and that the adults could also take advantage of. In accord with John’s motto “whatever it takes,” the Foundation now works tirelessly to fulfill that wish. In addition, the Foundation supports other 9/11 first responder organizations and the Blue Point Food Pantry. We hope you will come visit this site often and join us in fulfilling John’s last wishes.
