The Charitable Foundation is a fire fighter-based, non-profit organization that focuses on providing opportunities for children recovering from the trauma of burn injuries as well as assisting all citizens affected by a fire and supporting medical professionals in the burn care field. We also focus our efforts on the support of widows and orphans of Denver Fire Fighters and support for Fire Fighters and their families who are experiencing medical or financial hardships.
The mission of the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation is to provide aid and support to Colorado fire fighters, their families, and dependents who are victims of tragedy.
The Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation was founded in January 2002 by members of the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters who recognized the tremendous void left in the lives of Colorado fire fighters when tragedy strikes. The founders realized the men and women who sacrifice their lives, or are injured while saving others, leave families with very real emotional and financial needs.
MDA is dedicated to empowering people living with neuromuscular disease to achieve their potential.Leading the way, MDA works with partners in industry and institutions to advance care, accelerate research and advocacy, and unite the community.
For almost seven decades, firefighters like us across the country have been Filling the Boot on street corners to fight back against these diseases – and every year we’ve given millions of dollars to MDA to fund life-changing research and family services. We’re hitting the streets to do it again, and while we’re out there, you can help us fill our boots online.
The mission of the Denver Firefighters Museum is to preserve the history of the Denver Fire Department and firefighting through the collection and preservation of artifacts, documents and photographs. The purpose of the Museum is to educate the public about fire safety and the history of firefighting in Denver from its inception to the present. This is accomplished through interpretive exhibits, educational programming and scholarly research.
Education is the primary focus of programs at the Museum. Educational program content is guided by its relevance to the mission statement. Programs are designed to provide the participants with opportunities to understand how fire safety and prevention directly affect their daily lives.
The National Firefighter Ski Week and Races have long been an event immersed in camraderie and competitive fun with the primary goal of raising money for charity. In 2011 we were granted 501(c)(3) status and became a public charity. Our mission is to raise money to benefit charities associated with firefighting, firefighters in need and/or the survivors of fire.
Combining that mission with our passion for skiing and snowboarding is what this event is all about! The proceeds from this even benefit the Denver Fire Fighters Burn Foundation and the IAFF Charitable Foundation.
