How Your Support Makes a Difference 

The funds you’ll help raise purchase essential equipment that powers the LAFD to serve the community efficiently. Donations are the driving force behind the LAFD Foundation's funding accomplishments. Every donation, no matter what amount, directly impacts the members of the LAFD and affects their ability to keep LA safe.

Donor dollars translate into:

  • Equipment and safety gear that protects firefighters from sudden injuries
  • Tools that help locate, rescue, and administer care for victims
  • Technology to track and minimize wildfire risks for fire-prone communities
  • Programs to safeguard firefighters' physical and mental health

When you give to the LAFD Foundation, you can do so with pride and confidence. More than $.90 of each dollar funds critical tools, equipment, technology, and training programs.

Every gift counts. Over the past four years, the LAFD Foundation has provided more than $10M in funding for high-impact needs.
