On Tuesday, November 30, 2021, the Berwyn Fire Company is participating in the annual global generosity movement of GivingTuesday. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, BFC joins millions worldwide participating in this annual fundraising initiative to inspire others to give.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday will kick off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on November 30, 2020, and throughout the year
Berwyn Fire and EMS have always relied on fundraising donations to help our organization offset our annual operating budget but have shown they are even more critical in 2020. Our largest funding source is the income we receive from billing patients for ambulance transportation. Unfortunately, insurance companies reimburse patients directly, and many individuals fail to forward those funds onto us – a problem that only becomes magnified when families are experiencing economic hardship as we continue to navigate the post-pandemic life and increased inflation.
“Our overall fundraising donations for 2021 are DOWN 12% compared to last year. Your support is greatly appreciated to make our largest fundraising event of the year a success! as a volunteer fire company & 501(c)3 charitable non-profit, The Berwyn Fire company relies on donations from the community to help fund our ambulance and fire operations. We hope you’ll consider making a donation to our GivingTuesday fundraiser or making an end-of-the-year contribution as we close out 2021,” Tom Torresson, President of Berwyn Fire Company.
The Berwyn Fire Company greatly appreciates the support of the Tredyffrin-Easttown community to keep our fire and EMS operations running smoothly
