Help support our endowment
To ensure a high standard of public safety, now and in the future, we have started an endowment to
support the Mount Vernon Fire Department’s mission in the following areas:
- Equipment & Supplies: Firefighters use highly specialized tools to get their work done safely. We help fill in the gaps where the annual budget may fall short.
- Recruitment & Retention: Mount Vernon firefighters volunteer their time responding to calls and
training.We support them through activities thanking them and their families!
- Professional Development: Training never stops. Our firefighters are always training in various
areas to more effectively respond to emergencies.
- Public Relations: Through educational outreach, we ultimately hope
to prevent fires and accidents from happening.
- Memorial: We honor the service of our past members and
support them and their families in their time of need.
Our endowment is under the care of the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
