The Firefighters Charitable Foundation continues to provide assistance to those in need. Grants are given to assist local fire/disaster victims, fire prevention education, volunteer fire department equipment purchase, and community safety programs.

If you or your organization applies for a grant, please be sure to describe how funding will be utilized and whether this is an ongoing or one time program and/or equipment purchase.

Your grant application will be reviewed and you will be notified as to the status of your grant request.

PLEASE NOTE: Grants given may be ONLY A PERCENTAGE of your request or needs! ONLY the President of FFCF and/or the Board of Directors determines the amount of the grant based on many criteria. Since the FFCF tries to help as many as possible in need, funds available for grants must be spread among many approved applicants. For example, a fire house may need a new fire truck and FFCF will grant only a small percentage of what is needed to meet the procurement.
