|HELPING HEAL BODIES, HEARTS AND SOULS |
Fire and burn injuries are the second-leading cause of accidental death in children ages one to four, and the third-leading cause of injury and death for those ages one to eighteen. Hundreds of thousands of people suffer burn injuries every year.
The IAFF Burn Foundation, established by the IAFF, is dedicated to fire prevention and burn awareness education, advocacy, burn research and improving the quality of life for burn survivors. Created in 1982 as a 501(c)3, tax-exempt, non-profit, the Burn Foundation is one of the largest sources for burn research grants and the sponsor of the annual IAFF Burn Foundation’s International Burn Camp, held each fall in Washington, DC.
The IAFF Burn Foundation takes a full spectrum approach to supporting the burn community by partnering with other International/National organizations to take a collaborative approach to many initiatives. In addition, the IAFF Burn Foundation works to protect first responders from burn injury or death.
IAFF Burn Foundation programs are funded through the generous donations received from IAFF affiliates, concerned citizens, foundations, organizations and corporate partners. Please help provide life-saving services for the community and life-changing treatments and experiences for burn survivors through your tax-deductible donation.
