    • Spokane Valley Firefighters’ Benevolent Association


      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.

      Mission Statement

      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.

      Steve Neil Hatcher, 57 of Spokane Valley, WA died suddenly on August 5, 2015. Born on November 5, 1957 to Ron and Hazel Hatcher, Steve graduated from Central Valley High School passionate in sports.

      In 1980 Steve joined the Spokane Valley Fire Department and in his own words he never worked a day in his life. He served as a paramedic for more than 20 years and was proudly promoted to Captain on July 1, 2009.

      One year after meeting the love of his life, Steve proposed to Mindy leading to 35 years of living every moment to its fullest. Together they owned Awards, Etc. in Post Falls, ID. They were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Marissa and Breanne (Noodles). Coaching his girls’ soccer teams gave him the opportunity to play a larger role in their lives.

      He loved hunting (fanatical), scuba diving, four wheeling, time at the lake, and ice cold root beer. Steve was the rope that tied our family together and will be forever missed.

      Steve is survived by his wife Mindy, daughters Marissa Fuher (Corey), Breanne Hatcher, parents Ron and Hazel Hatcher, sister Linda Thompson (Richard), brother Lyle Hatcher (Maria), family in-laws Rovella Vawter, Doug Vawter (Cheri), Tim Vawter (Barb), Wendy May (Kimbo) along with numerous nieces and nephews.

      A service will be held on Friday, August 14 at 11:00 AM at the Church of the Nazarene, 15515 E 20th Ave, Spokane Valley, WA 99037.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made in his memory to:
