Donating on behalf of someone is a great way to spread the ‘spirit of the season’ Simplify gift giving this year without the stress and hassle of shopping, and avoid the buyer’s remorse of getting “just something” that will inevitably just end up in the back of the closet.
When you support FFBI through our secure online donation system through the end of 2017, you can choose to contribute in the name of a loved one or co-worker.
We’ve made it super easy on you too:
- Visit networkforgood.org in your favorite web browser.
- Choose an amount.
- In the “special purpose” section, tell us who you’d like to donate in honor of.
- Complete the transaction.
FFBI will mail a personalized card to you, or directly to the honoree, with a message that details ways in which the donation might be put to good use in the coming year.
We say thanks a lot for everything our supporters do. Let us show you just how much your generous gifts impact the burn community.
Your donations can be used to do so much… let’s count some ways you make a difference:
$25 can buy 50 Stamps for the children at Firefighters Kids Camp to Send Postcards Home to Their Families
$50 supplies Classroom Materials for the Youth Firesetter Intervention Program for 15 Children
$500 makes it possible for a child to attend the Firefighters Kids Camp for Burn Survivors free of charge to their family

$1,000 helps a Burn Survivor attend the annual World Burn Congress
$2,500 sends a local Burn Unit Nurse to attend the American Burn Association Conference to further their education and improve the level of burn care in Northern California
