Support Volunteer Firefighters
When Oregonians receive their tax refunds, they may choose to donate a portion or all of that
refund to a list of non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations. In order to be included on the list of
organizations eligible to receive such contributions, the Oregon Volunteer Firefighters
Association must be registered with the Department of Justice as a charitable non-profit and
submit 10,000 signatures of support. If successful, any contributions received will fund training
opportunities for Oregon’s 8,760 volunteer firefighters and support the Association’s Relief Fund
to assist volunteer firefighters and their families in the event of injury or hardship.
On behalf of the Oregon Volunteer Firefighter Association,
Thank you for your support!
