PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - An education fund for kindergarten through high school is being set up for the current and future children of the 19 firefighters who died battling an Arizona wildfire in June.

The Arizona School Boards Association is acting as the fiscal agent for the Prescott Granite Mountain Hotshot Memorial Education Fund.

It's partnering with the Arizona Association of School Business Officials, Arizona School Administrators, Arizona Education Association, Arizona Business Education Coalition and the Arizona Association of School Superintendents.

Officials tell the Daily Courier (http://bit.ly/1akk1pC ) that 100% of the donations will go to the fallen firefighters' families.

That includes the wives, the women engaged to the Hotshots and all the children, even those not yet born.

Lawyers are drafting legal documents that'll be finalized when the unborn children of Hotshots arrive.
