WHAT IS A VIRTUAL FUNDRAISER?

A virtual fundraiser happens online. It's completely organized and hosted by an amazing volunteer supporter or partner organization: that's YOU! The Foundation has limited direct involvement, but don't worry—our Virtual Event Guide (download below) has event ideas, fundraising tips, social media marketing tips, and more.

WHY HOST A FUNDRAISER?

Virtual fundraisers are one of the best ways to directly impact firefighter families facing hardship. For example, donations to the Foundation allowed us to support Ricky, a former firefighter with PTSD, by paying for several months of car payments while he sought treatment:

If you’re an individual supporter or community group:

  • Show firefighters how much you appreciate their hard work, especially during the current pandemic.
  • Have fun with friends & family while also supporting our COVID-19 heroes!
  • Directly help a firefighter family in need. Donations to the Foundation never pay for overhead costs, they always go directly towards our programs: financial aid to firefighter families in need; disaster relief to firefighters; grants to other fire charities; and scholarships to firefighters' children.

If you’re a company partner:

  • Show customers and the community how much your company cares about the first responders on the front lines of the pandemic.
  • Boost employee satisfaction and morale by supporting a good cause.
  • Reach new customers and an expanded network by aligning with the worthy, timely, and non-controversial cause of helping firefighters.
  • Build a closer relationship with a nonprofit partner.
