Thank our firefighters for bravery and service with a special donation.

About the Charity

Founded more than a century ago, the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firefighter’s Fund is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to helping the families of firefighters injured or killed in the line of duty or facing other crisis.

Firefighters dedicate their lives to helping others. They rush into burning buildings, dangle from helicopters, jump into raging waters, climb into trenches, and race to the frontlines of disaster, all to protect the rest of us.

But when the unthinkable happens, where do firefighters turn for help? The Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firefighter’s Fund. Helping our valiant firefighters in times of trouble is simply not possible without your kind and generous donations.

Your contributions help provide:

  • Basic living expenses
  • Health insurance
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Memorial scholarships for the children of deceased firefighters
  • Other needed financial assistance
