The purpose of the Red Lodge Fire-EMS Foundation is to provide financial and other support to the Fire, EMS and Search and Rescue divisions of Red Lodge Fire Rescue and and their respective members. This support is broad-based and comprehensive, and extends to providing material and equipment support as needed by each division to accomplish its mission, as well as emergency need-based grants and loans to the members in good standing of Red Lodge Fire Rescue. Annually, the Foundation selectively provides post-secondary school educational scholarships to children of qualified members of Red Lodge Fire Rescue to help defray the costs of post-secondary school education or vocational training. The Foundation also selectively extends financial support to members of Red Lodge Fire Rescue on a need-basis to enable them to obtain and further their professional training and/or other educational goals.
The Foundation is a non-profit, tax exempt (501(c)(3)) corporation. The Foundation's Board of Directors is comprised of current and former members of Red Lodge Fire Rescue.
The Foundation also administers a comprehensive annual fund-raising effort to support the Foundation's activities as well as the activities of Red Lodge Volunteer Firefighter's Association, Inc., Red Lodge EMS Association, Inc. and Carbon County Search & Rescue.
These non-profit, tax exempt (501(c)(3)) organizations also support the Fire, EMS and Search and Rescue divisions of Red Lodge Fire Rescue and their respective members. In order to consolidate their collective fund-raising efforts to make the process more efficient and cost-effective, the Foundation and these organizations have entered into an agreement authorizing the Foundation to solicit, receive and disburse donations from the public on behalf of the Foundation and each of the other participating organizations.
All donations received by the Foundation are used to support the activities of the Foundation and each of the other participating organizations on an as-needed basis. Any donation received by the Foundation that is specifically designated by the donor for the benefit of a specific organization will, however, be disbursed by the Foundation to the specified organization.
