Fundraising & Support
Pennsburg Volunteer Fire Company No.1 is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that has been protecting the residents and visitors of Pennsburg Borough and Upper Hanover Township since 1899. We depend on your generous tax-deductible donations to help pay all of our expenses such as utility bills, insurances, station and apparatus maintenance and upkeep as well as purchase and maintenance of life saving equipment. We also use funds to provide materials at community outreach events.
Fund Drive/Monetary Support
Pennsburg Fire Company annually sends out our yearly fund drive mailings in late January or early February. A reminder mailing is sent out in late May or early June. These mailings get sent to all residents and businesses in Pennsburg Borough and our portion of Upper Hanover Township. These donations are tax deductible. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation outside of the annual fund drive, please make checks payable to “Pennsburg Fire Company”, and send it to the attention of our Fundraising Committee. Mail to Pennsburg Fire Company, 501 Penn St. Pennsburg, PA 18073. For your convenience we now offer a secure link to donate via PayPal below.
Support While You Shop
Did you know that you can support us while shopping on Amazon? The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations like us. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
