Welcome to the official site of the Bellingham/Whatcom Firefighters Benevolent Foundation. We encourage you to look around and learn about all of the different benefits and services that we provide to our members and the community.

Firefighters take pride in their service to the public through their employment and by supporting a variety of charitable causes. The Bellingham/Whatcom Fire Fighters Benevolent Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides assistance to fire fighters, their families, people in need and community organizations. 

Funds are distributed in many forms, one of which is the Jason Karwhite scholarship to high school seniors who are seeking education for a career in the fire service/medical field. They are selected by a committee of our members. We support other charitable organizations with significant local impact such as Burned Children Recovery Foundation, Royal Family Kids Camp, Relay For Life, Camp Blaze, MDA

We do so, not only with monetary support but also boots on the ground. Many of our members volunteer a significant amount of time working closely with these other organizations. Gifts are also made to funds set up to benefit the families of firefighters injured or killed in the line of duty both locally and around the nation. Other grants are made by Board action upon request.
