The Foundation and our donors recognize the important role VFDs play for our rural communities, especially in the devastating wildfire season experienced in 2022. This funding opportunity provides added support for VFDs to purchase safety and equipment needed to serve and protect our neighbors in these communities.
Note: The 2023 VFD Grant Cycle is now closed. Beginning January 2024, grant applications can be submitted through the online grant manager by clicking the "Apply Now" button that will then be live.
First-time applicants will need to create an account. Once your account is set up, your dashboard will be displayed on the screen every time you log in. From the dashboard, you can edit your contact information, begin the application process, access application drafts and submitted applications, and submit required post-grant evaluation reports.
