Facebook allows users to create fundraiser posts to support the causes they care about. They process donations without fees, so 100% of giving goes directly to the nonprofit of choice. Most commonly, in the weeks before their birthday, people create birthday posts to fundraise for organizations they support.

Facebook fundraisers are easy to create, and they can have a big impact!

A great way to increase your impact and help us spread the word about our work is by hosting a fundraiser for the Foundation!

You can host a fundraiser in person or online:

  • Host an In-Person Fundraiser
  • Host a Virtual Fundraiser (facebook or other online channels)

Matching Gifts

Your gift can change a firefighter’s life. Your company’s matching gift can change another.

Did you know that many companies across the country match employee contributions to the Fire Family Foundation? If your company is one of them, you could double or even triple the impact of your donation – without giving an extra dime!

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Your company’s matching gift will help provide financial grants to firefighters, college scholarships, disaster relief, and funds to other fire charities all of which helps firefighters and their families in need.

Fill Out Matching Gift Form

Print or request your company’s matching gift form, or submit via your workplace intranet. Review the program guidelines to see whether Fire Family Foundation is eligible.

Mail or email the completed form to us, and we’ll do the rest:

Fire Family Foundation

If your company does not currently match donations to Fire Family Foundation, it doesn’t hurt to ask them to start. Pass on more info about how other corporations engage with Fire Family Foundation.

You may just inspire your employer to make a difference!

The Foundation recently received a generous memorial donation from a Fire Family in Wisconsin. Kevin, a firefighter for over twenty years, passed away in late 2019. Kevin’s daughters, Abby and Haley, chose to recognize his service, and keep his memory alive, by collecting donations for the Foundation in lieu of flowers at his funeral. We’re inspired by Kevin’s legacy and grateful to his daughters for helping other Fire Families like their own!

If you are interested in making a memorial, tribute or honorary donation, please contact rpopp@firefamilyfoundation.org or call 323-550-2208.
