The purpose of SVFFBA is to assemble an association of firefighters and civilians assembled to form a 501 (c) (3) not for profit fund raising body to meet the benevolent needs of our community.
The Spokane Valley Firefighters' Benevolent Association is committed to helping members of our community, region, nation and beyond in times of hardships, sickness or need. We will strive to provide a helping hand in times of distress, benefits in times of financial hardship and fellowship among firefighters and citizens in all times, good and bad.
The Spokane Valley Firefighters’ Benevolent Association was established in April 1999 to assist our neighbors with financial assistance in times of hardship and to help meet the charitable needs of the community at large. A Board of Directors, made up of firefighters and citizens, reviews each request for funding at monthly meetings. In order for a request to be granted there must funds available and a demonstrated benevolent need. Funding for the benevolent association comes from the firefighters through payroll deductions and from revenue generated from semi-annual raffles and a wine tasting/auction.
Last year the benevolent association donated over $34,000 to those in need.
