Mission & Vision

Our Mission

The Seattle Fire Foundation harnesses the power of private philanthropy to respond to the needs of the Seattle Fire Department—much in the way the department unfailingly responds to the needs of our communities. The goal is to raise supplemental funds for safety equipment, public education and other resources that the city budget cannot provide.  

Sometimes Even Heroes Need Heroes

That’s why we created the non-profit Seattle Fire Foundation. As a private organization, we have the flexibility to raise and allocate resources more nimbly than the city budget process—enabling us to identify and quickly fulfill the Seattle Fire Department’s pressing needs.  

  • Your donation will purchase additional ballistic gear that that allows firefighters to enter dangerous situations with greater speed and confidence—to more quickly protect life and property. 
  • Your donation will better equip EMT’s and paramedics to save more lives in a medical emergency.
  • Your donation will prevent and mitigate catastrophes through fire and disaster preparedness education

Your generosity will make a difference every day, creating a safer, more secure city for all who live here. Because helping heroes helps all of us.
