About the Charity
Founded more than a century ago, the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’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 Firemen’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
Tax ID# 95-6205446

Countdown to December 31st
Show your firefighter appreciation this holiday season by joining people across the country dedicated to giving back.
We hope to raise $10,000 by December 31 to help our firefighter families in need. Our valiant heroes braved the frontlines of the devastating California Firestorms and put themselves at risk every day to protect our lives, pets and property.
When the unthinkable happens, these incredible men and women count on the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund.
Together, we can make a difference in celebration of our hard-working heroes.
We are inspired by the kindness and inventiveness of 9-year-old Coral Noonan, who turned a holiday gift into a fundraiser for our charity!
After receiving a carnival set for Christmas, this fire captain’s daughter hosted a fun and festive carnival and invited her family to attend. The event included games and guests purchased tickets to play. Earning a nice bundle of cash, Coral decided she wanted to help firefighters and donated the money to the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund.
We are honored by her spirit of giving!
