History

In 2014 a group of Border Patrol Agents from Calexico California decided to put on a Christmas present drive to support the children of fallen Border Patrol Agents. These Border Patrol Agents started their present drive with a list of twenty-four children from the local southern California area. A Christmas tree was placed in one Border Patrol Station with the names of fallen Border Patrol Agents on it. After putting on two present drives the Border Patrol Agents decided to make the organization official by applying for 501(c)(3) status. The next year Fallen Agents Fund expanded to four present drive locations and gave one hundred ninety-two presents to thirty-nine fallen Agents children. Shortly after the Christmas present drive the Fallen Agents Fund was awarded official 501(c)(3) status by the Internal Revenue Service on March, 30 2016.[1]

Programs

The Fallen Agents Fund was established to aid and assist the families of fallen Border Patrol Agents.

Along with the present drive, the Fallen Agents Fund conducts a family fund every time a Border Patrol Agent suffers from fatality.
