52 Club Individual Donation



A buck a week to help a buddy.
Be a part of the “Compassion that spreads like wildfire.


     Every summer we hear the news that makes us heartsick: wildland firefighters die in the line of duty. They are killed in burn-overs, vehicle accidents, helicopters, tanker crashes, and heart attacks. Their lives touch many family members, friends, and co-workers. Survivors are left to struggle with incomprehensible loss and the financial burden that comes from fatalities and injuries.

     Who will help them after their firefighter has paid the ultimate price?  The light at the end of that tunnel is the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.  It takes your help to keep doing this good work.  Since the Foundation was formed, we have given away more than 1.5 million dollars in emergency grants to injured firefighters and families of fallen firefighters.

     Almost everyone can afford to donate just $1 per week for a year.  That is $52 for an annual donation.  Challenge your buddies, friends, family, and communities to join in.  You’ll get a pin and a helmet sticker, but what you really get is knowing that we’ll be there when things go bad for our firefighters.

     Join the 52 Club individually or have your company or organization listed as a Gold Member when at least 75% of all its employees enroll.
