Our Charities

Giving back to the communities that give so much to us

Charities Mission Statement: Charity driven initiatives benefiting our communities are a primary mission of the VCPFA. Through supportive partnerships with established charitable organizations, sponsoring independent charity events, and direct contributions from our members; VCPFA Charities endeavors to promote an altruistic spirit of charitable and civic engagement among our membership and within the communities we serve.

The members of Ventura County Professional Firefighters’ Association, IAFF Local 1364, are committed to more than just the mission of fighting fires, protecting property and saving lives through our rescue operations. We are also dedicated to the fire service’s proud and time-honored tradition of giving back to our communities; through volunteerism, monetary contributions to local and national charitable organizations as well as the establishment and enduring funding of various educational scholarships VCPFA members seek to strengthen and draw our communities closer together.

Through voluntary payroll deductions and fundraising events, VCPFA Charities raises money so your firefighters can humbly give back to the communities that have already given us so much.  In addition to our partnerships with established charitable organizations, our Charities mission is manifested in our support of various local schools; educational programs and functions; as well as civic and youth sport programs.
