The La Grange Park Fire Department Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to benefit the Fire Department and personnel of the Fire Department.
The Department holds an annual fundraising campaign in the Fall during which we mail residents a letter seeking donations. The campaign is run by Fire Department personnel and directly benefits personnel and the Fire Department of La Grange Park. Residents have been very generous and both the Foundation and Fire Department are grateful. Residents can also donate to the Foundation at any other time throughout the year.
How Funds are Used
The money donated is used for a variety of purposes. The funds help to retain our paid-on-call personnel in a variety of ways, including sponsoring an annual appreciation dinner. These funds also help the Fire Department, and in turn the residents, by providing important firefighting and rescue equipment not included in the Village’s regular budget. A number of purchases have been made over the years including several sets of protective firefighting gear, self-contained breathing apparatus, pagers / alerting devices, hose and nozzles.
The La Grange Park Fire Department Foundation is not affiliated with any other fire department organization conducting fundraising in La Grange Park, and it does not solicit by telephone.
