Where does our funding come from?

Financing the activities of the Wilmington Firefighters Foundation is accomplished through annual membership dues, corporate donations, and private contributions from members of the community. We have partnered with local businesses who also provide ongoing support through fundraising campaigns. Additionally, we have t-shirts, challenge coins, and other items for sale and are very committed to holding community events such as 5K runs and fitness challenges each year.

How will your contribution be used?

All financial support received by the Wilmington Firefighters Foundation is used to provide assistance to member firefighters, retired member firefighters, and community assistance programs. The Wilmington Firefighters Foundation is also the managing entity for the Wilmington Firefighters Memorial which honors 8 Wilmington firefighters who were tragically lost while protecting and serving others. Funds that are allocated to the Firefighters Memorial are used for general upkeep, seasonal landscaping, repairs, commemorative decorations, 9/11 and individual lost firefighter memorial ceremonies, and to build a reserve fund in case of an unfortunate tragedy where one of our dedicated Wilmington firefighters is lost in the line of duty.
