      MPFF Fund Raising

      We have started our 2014 fund raising To help support our organization and help meet our financial goals, each year the Minnesota Professional Fire Fighters conducts a telephone fundraising campaign. The proceeds we receive from our fundraising go into our general operating account to run our Association and also support the many outstanding programs of our Association, some of which are: • Financial support to the Regions Hospital Burn Center with its camps for burn victims. • Firefighters’ Muscular Dystrophy Programs. • Work with local and state governments for better fire safety, hazardous materials and emergency medical laws to benefit Minnesotans. If you would like to make a contribution or you would like more information about our fundraising campaign, please call (877) 509-8358. Clearly, fire fighters hold one of the most hazardous occupations based upon ratings of death and injury in the line of duty. By working with the citizens of our communities, we hope to change these statistics. Your contribution will assist us in being able to attain our goals, which are so vital in helping the Minnesota Professional Fire Fighters Association make Minnesota a safe place to live, work and enjoy recreational activities. The Association is a nonprofit professional membership organization and is recognized as a nonprofit organization by the Internal Revenue Service. However because of its particular status, donations are not tax deductible as a charitable contribution for Federal Income Tax purposes. The Association’s programs would not be possible without the community sponsorship and support. To help ensure the success of our fundraising campaign, the Association has retained the services of Community Welfare Services, Inc. as a campaign organizer and professional fundraiser that is registered with the state, to assist with sponsor enrollment and delivery of services. A portion of the gross sponsorship proceeds is used to defray the expenses of public education, administration and the cost of this appeal. Registration by the state agency does not constitute or imply endorsement of the organization, the fundraiser or the cause. Sincerely, Chris Parsons President Honoring Those Who Have Made the Ultimate Sacrifice Every day Fire Fighters go on duty knowing they may be asked to make the Ultimate Sacrifice while saving the lives and property of the citizens of their communities. Too often overlooked, as others run from burning buildings they run in. Not for lack of fear, but in spite of it! All have given some, and some have given all. We ask you to join us in honoring those who have made this sacrifice and their families whose lives changed forever by losing their Father, Mother, Spouse, or Child.
