First Preventers is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 2019 by Rick Shaw.

Through donations, fundraising, and grants the non-profit helps to provide schools, organizations, and communities with access to the trailblazing First Preventers Program and other partnerships in order to create a safer space for students, employees, community members, and others by preventing more incidents and tragedies before they happen.


The collaboration of the many people involved in this process has already proven that when information is obtained and acted upon – great things can happen.
