Dear Fire Fighter Supporters:
I would like to personally take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of the Madison Professional Fire Fighters Association for agreeing to support our Fundraising Drive. It is your support that will help us with our many programs. Our association represents professional fire fighters in their efforts to take a pro-active approach to fire safety laws and community services throughout the state. We represent the individual members, not the agencies.
Contributions or donations to the Madison Fire Fighters Association are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. While our association is not a tax-deductible charity, it is a non-profit organization and we feel our programs are very important, too.
Your support means a lot. We sincerely hope that our actions will warrant your continued support in the future. The firefighters of our nation are rated as having one of the most hazardous occupation in terms of death and injury. Working with the citizens of the Madison area, perhaps we can change these statistics.
