Our charity has been created by the dedicated firefighters from the Cities of Mesa, Gilbert, Superstition, Gila River, Salt River, Ft. McDowell and Florence, Arizona, who truly believe that we can make a difference in our communities. As we respond into the homes of citizens we can observe up close the personal situations where people truly need a hand to live and succeed. We seek to plant positive seeds in and around our communities for the benefit of those communities. We are a registered 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity, with a simple aim - to help our fellow firefighters give something extra back to the communities we live in and care for.
The purpose of our East Valley Firefighter Charities is:
- to support the respective communities for charitable needs
- to support State and National charitable causes
- to raise funds in support of our charitable activities
- to promote good will through those lives we are able to touch
Our main fundraisers are our Fill the Boot for MDA, the Annual Poker Run, Annual 911 Tribute and our Annual Hook and Ladder Golf Tournament. These fundraisers gives us the opportunity to help others. With a board made up of diverse individuals of many ranks and backgrounds, serving on a mostly voluntary basis, we aim to fulfill our mission. We are an organization with extremely low overhead with a high percentage of funds raised going to help others. Human Interaction that produces laughter or tears of joy is a fine medicine for us and our community.
We invite you to participate in any of our yearly events or send us a donation to support our efforts. We also encourage you to help others by finding something you can volunteer for to make a difference. Sometimes this difference is 5 minutes of your time. With a donation to our organization you can support a program that is a clear win for all involved.
