WSFCA Launches the WSFCA Foundation

The WSFCA Foundation was established to promote and facilitate the education of Wisconsin fire service personnel with fireground command and control responsibilities to enable them to perform their duties efficiently and effectively, with particular emphasis on first responder safety. The goal of the Foundation is to do everything possible to ensure "everyone goes home safely, every call, every day".

Your donation will help promote and provide:

  • Fire service training in Wisconsin
  • Safety of our first responders and the people they serve
  • Educational programs for new Chief Officers
  • Innovating programs to support the overall mission of the Foundation 

Funding for the WSFCA Foundation is sourced by:

  • Named Endowments
  • Named Scholarships
  • Sustaining Supporters
  • One-Time Sponsorships & Targeted Donations 

Corporations, departments, organizations, families, and individuals are all encouraged to contribute.

The inaugural WSFCA Foundation President's Dinner was held on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at Lambeau Field. The evening was a great success with over 400 in attendance. All proceeds from the dinner benefited the WSFCA Foundation.

A special thank you goes to Baycom for their generosity in sponsoring the dinner and location! Green Bay Metro provided in-kind transportation services and the Waukesha County Fire Chiefs Association provided support for the entertainment. Over $3,200 was raised from raffle drawings provided by Kelmann Restoration.

Details for how to apply for this scholarship will be announced soon!

There is still time to donate for 2016! WSFCA members that contribute $100 or more before the end of 2016 will receive a commemorative mug in recognition of being an inaugural donor.
