Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department

Ways To Donate

The Chatham Township Fire Department is dependent upon the generous financial support from the residents we serve. Donor funding helps to support the department and means more first responders can be employed and deleted resources can be restored. In addition to our annual fund drive, we welcome contributions anytime and offer a convenient way for our supporters to donate online, too. We’re recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 non-profit organization so all donations are tax-deductible. Our IRS Tax Identification number is 226101872.

Many of our residents also take advantage of employer matching gifts. We’re grateful for your support as it completes the partnership between our residents and volunteers.
