Our Donors

From major companies to individuals, our supporters make it possible for the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund to provide assistance and care to those in need.

Make a Difference

Firefighters race to the frontlines of disaster, putting their lives on the line to help the rest of us. Unfortunately, some end up with burns, wounds, cancer, heart problems or lung disease.


The Boot Brigade is a collection of volunteers dedicated to helping raise money for the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund. These amazing people help make our events possible.

Our array of fundraising programs gives you plenty of ways to be a hero to a hero.
