Our Mission;

The Charlotte Firefighters Association has supported the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the past through the “Fill the Boot” fund drive. This year, as in years past, we are hoping to raise enough money to give a substantial donation to the MDA to aid in the research of a cure for Muscular Dystrophy.

The Charlotte Fire Department Benevolent Fund was established to provide assistance to members of the Charlotte Fire Department or their immediate family members in the event of a family crisis, hardship, or emergency situations. The benevolent fund is a non­profit charitable organization. Fundamentally it is firefighters supporting firefighters.

Supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association & the CFD Benevolent Fund is an excellent tool to reach a captive audience of active professionals, increase brand awareness, extend product exposure and drive sales.

Thank You
